Worcester Public Library to Host Award-Winning Authors

Saturday, September 15, 2012


The Worcester Public Library is bringing three accomplished authors to town for its 7th Annual Celebration of Authors.

The October 11th event will feature Chris Bohjalian, author of 15 books with another being released soon, Leah Hager Cohen, an author that dabbles in both fiction and non-fiction, and Eleanor Lipman, an award-winning novel writer.

Julie Glavin, Executive Director of the Worcester Public Library Foundation, anticipates between 200 and 250 attendees at the October event, and is excited about the quality of authors coming.

"We're very excited about the three authors we have coming here," Glavin said. "Each will do a reading, and then they'll open up the floor to questions and just chat with the people here. It's a really cool event, and authors always have great stories."

"Chris Bohjalian's new book Sandcastle Girls has a lot to do with his Armenian culture, so I'm sure there will be some interest with the Worcester Armenian population… Leah Hager Cohen is actually a professor at Holy Cross, and has done some really amazing things."

$100 sponsor-level ticket buyers will be treated to a cocktail reception from 6:00 – 7:00 pm. All guests are invited to readings and remarks by three nationally celebrated authors from 7:00 – 9:00 pm, and a book-signing and dessert reception with the authors from 9:00 – 10:00 pm.
