Discover new titles and old favorites amongst the 33 featured authors and illustrators at this year’s 20th annual Sharon Summer Book Signing. Since 1997 the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon has been welcoming authors, townspeople, and neighbors from across the tri-state region to celebrate a weekend of literary events.
The literary weekend kicks off on Friday, August 5, 2016 at 4:30 pm with a free children’s author book signing. Participating authors include illustrator Wendell Minor and two-time Caldecott Honor winner Lane Smith.
The evening continues at 6 pm with adult authors. The genres vary with everything from fiction and biographies to historical books and cookbooks. Attending authors are Sharon’s own Peter Steiner with his new novel The Capitalist, sports commentator Frank Deford, and bestseller Simon Winchester (pictured above) with his latest work Pacific. Chef and writer duo Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough will be there to exchange recipes and sign À la Mode, their just released collection of recipes. Also Rich Cohen, author of The Sun & the Moon & the Rolling Stones.
Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served and six author dinners follow. Book signing admission costs $35. Visit www.hotchkisslibrary.org for more information.
