An Evening With Sam Quinones: Q&A Discussion moderated by Dr. Paul Eisenstein
October 28th, 7:30pm
The Friends of the Library had a special Q&A Discussion with Sam Quinones, author of 2020's Common Book Dreamland. The event took place via Zoom. Friends were invited to send any questions they had for Mr. Quinones over in advance. Though the Friends event was unable to take place in-person, due to COVID, they were still able to have their formal author photo reveal. Using photos and PowerPoint, they were able to show off the author photo before it was signed, and then after the signature had been added (via a signed sticker the author mailed to the University). Although it was very different from previous years, the Friends Common Book event was still a big success!
Meet the Author: Karen White
The Friends of the Courtright Memorial Library are pleased to announce that, in partnership with Westerville Public Library, we will be hosting author Karen White for an author talk and book signing during National Library Week. On April 9th, at 7pm in Riley Auditorium, Karen White will discuss one of her latest books, The Night the Lights Went Out, coming out in paperback on March 27th. It is currently available in hardback. Before the event (6pm-7pm), Otterbein music students Owen Hopper and Eric Stratton will perform.
The book summary is:
Recently divorced, Merilee Talbot Dunlap moves with her two children to the Atlanta suburb of Sweet Apple, Georgia. When an anonymous local blog starts dishing about her failed marriage, Merilee finds some measure of peace in town matriarch Sugar Prescott.
Sugar's stories give Merilee a different perspective on the town and its wealthy school moms in their tennis whites and shiny SUVs, and even on her new friendship with glamourous young mother Heather Blackford.
In a town like Sweet Apple, where sins and secrets are as likely to be found behind the walls of gated mansions as in the dark woods surrounding Merilee's house, appearance is everything. But just how dangerous that deception can be will shock all three women....
We are very excited to have Karen White join us. Get your tickets today!
