            On Monday, October 22, 2012, Emma Straub, author of Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures, was our featured speaker. Ambitious and richly imagined, this novel begins in 1929 and follows Elsa Emerson from her childhood in Door County, Wisconsin where her family owns the Cherry County Playhouse, to the glamour and excess of Hollywood, where she is remade into movie star Laura Lamont. Exploring the power of illusion and the possibility of escape, the expectations placed upon us by others and the identities we create for ourselves, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures is a timeless story of a woman trying to balance career, family, and personal happiness, all while remaining true to herself.

                On Tuesday, July 8, 2014, Marcia Clark, author of The Competition, was in conversation with John Valeri, columnist for the Hartford Books Examiner. Since launching onto the national stage while prosecuting O. J. Simpson during the “Trial of the Century” in the 1990s, Marcia Clark has become one of the best-known prosecutors of our time. In 2011, Clark made a new name for herself when her signature mix of riotous humor and visceral action marked her arrival as a major figure on the crime-writing scene. Since then, the publication of her first three novels—Guilt by Association, Guilt by Degrees, and Killer Ambition—has been met with an outpouring of media attention and accolades. There’s no denying that Clark is a brilliant storyteller who works readers the way an expert trial lawyer works a jury. The Competition, her most assured novel in the Rachel Knight series, is a powerful testament to the fact that Clark is at the top of her game.

                      Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge, better known as The Beekman Boys and authors of The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook will be our featured speakers on Thursday, November 17 at 7 p.m. “Heirlooms” of any type have a sentimental or intrinsic value greater than their assigned monetary figure. They are often irreplaceable, and because of this, they are treasured and passed down from one generation to the next. With this in mind, best-selling Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge, also known as The Fabulous Beekman Boys set out to create The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook showcasing heirloom fruits and vegetables and recipes from their farm, family, and friends. Each recipe is simple and delicious, arranged by season, and intended for both every day and special occasions. From springtime pea pod risotto and summery strawberry shortcake to quick braised collards in autumn and yummy chicken ‘n’ dumplings for a snowy winter’s day, this is simple yet luscious farm-fresh fare that everyone will love.
