Author Events Bring Great Books to Life!

Literary-Society-Logo-webdonationbooksThe Library’s Literary Society was launched in 2005, the Library’s 125th anniversary year. The Literary Society is comprised of generous individuals who care deeply about the Library and would like to bring to our community special programs, including noted authors, to celebrate reading and literacy.

The Literary Society’s first author event, in October 2005, featured Pulitzer Prize nominated author, Mary Doria Russell. Each year, the Literary Society features noted authors such as: award-winning crime novelist Laura Lippman; Cleveland’s famous mystery author Les Roberts; Scott London, internationally known journalist and photographer; and New York Times bestselling authors Adriana Trigiani, Lisa Scottoline, Tess Gerrittsen, and Carol Higgins Clark.
