Celebrating Exceptional Authors


The Worcester Public Library Foundation’s Seventh Annual A Celebration of Authors Thursday, October 11, 2012 at the Main Library 

Three authors appearing this year include Chris Bohjalian, author of fifteen books, including his critically acclaimed and newly published The Sandcastle Girls, a mesmerizing historical love story steeped in his Armenian heritage. Joining him is Leah Hager Cohen, a prolific fiction and nonfiction writer, whose most recent novel, The Grief of Others, is a perceptive, absorbing drama about the complex bonds of the modern American family. The delightful “diva of dialogue,” Elinor Lipman, rounds out the trio of acclaimed authors. Her latest humor-laden book, Tweet Land of Liberty: Irreverent Rhymes from the Political Circus, chronicles the 2012 election season with a poem a day—all 140 characters or less.

The evening’s program begins at 7 p.m. and includes a dessert reception and book-signing by the authors. Tickets: $35, $30/Friends of Worcester Public Library, and $100/sponsors. Sponsors may join the authors for a pre-program reception at 6 p.m. Proceeds benefit the library’s Foundation and its ongoing efforts to enhance library services. For tickets and more information, please call 508-799-1656.
