7:00PM at the Main Library, Thursday, March 2
Please join the Village Bookstore and the Mount Pleasant Library as they join forces for an in-person Local Author Book Club.
Participants will discuss the book and will later be joined by the author to continue the discussion. This month's selection is The Hundred Waters by Lauren Acampora.
Celebrated by the Boston Globe as "a brilliant anthropologist of the suburbs," the deliciously weird and darkly offbeat Lauren Acampora returns to the secret lives of the polished Connecticut haven that got us all hooked on NPR Best Book of the Year The Wonder Garden, and jolts us with the sparks that fly when those lives collide,
Lauren Acampora of The Wonder Garden, winner of the GLCA New Writers Award and a finalist for the New England Book Award; The Paper Wasp, longlisted for The Center for Fiction's First Novel Prize; and The Hundred Waters. She is a 2021 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Fiction from The New York Foundation for the Arts. Her writing has appeared Paris Review, Guernica, The New York Times Book Review, and LitHub, among other places. She lives in Westchester County, New York with her husband, artist Thomas Doyle, and their daughter.
