Booked for Lunch
Join us for the Friends of the Simsbury Library annual Author Luncheon! This year it features returning best-selling author Andre Dubus III and a delicious lunch at the Hopmeadow Country Club. >
Andre Dubus III ’s new book, Dirty Love, contains four linked short stories about love and betrayal. Says the New York Times Book Review, “Staggeringly good…. Dubus can hone in more quickly and efficiently on a character’s inner life than any writer I’ve encountered in recent memory.” Dubus is the author of novels including The House of Sand and Fog plus Townie, the memoir he shared at our previous luncheon. He will be signing books which are available for purchase.
The luncheon and talk will be at Hopmeadow Country Club on 85 Firetown Road in Simsbury. The cost is $28 per person. Click HERE for a printable Reservation Form, which includes lunch choices. You can also pick one up at the Library. Tables seat up to ten if you want to bring a group (please note on your Form).
