We conclude our 4th Annual Adult Summer Reading Program with our Grand Finale on Thursday, August 13th at 7 p.m. Our special guest speaker will be George Dawes Green...author...poet...storyteller.
George Dawes Green is the author of the critically-acclaimed novels The Caveman's Valentine and The Juror. It's been 14 years since Green published The Juror, but the wait has certainly been worthwhile - his new book Ravens is a captivating thriller and it's been getting great reviews. Personally speaking, I loved it...I could not put it down. Click here to read what The Wall Street Journal had to say about Green's return.
George Dawes Green is also the founder of the not-for-profit storytelling organization, The Moth. Now in its 11th year, The Moth conducts six ongoing programs featured widely on television and radio. "Stories at the Moth" has attracted such notable headliners as Margaret Cho, Ethan Hawke, Moby, Rosie O'Donnell, George Plimpton and Julia Stiles. The annual Moth Ball was called the 'it' charity by the New York Observer and has included such guests as Garrison Keillor, Malcolm Gladwell, and Adam Gopnik.
Our Adult Summer Reading Grand Finale will also include a book signing by Green (books will be available for purchase), a wine and cheese party, and the drawing for the Grand Prizes. It's sure to be a great evening and we hope that you can join us!
As I write this, we still have nearly two weeks of Adult Summer Reading left and it's not too late to sign up and enter to win some great prizes! I don't, however, think it's too early for me to say that this year's effort has been a huge success! Thank you!
