Author tea featuring Betsy Lerner author of “The Bridge Ladies,” 2 p.m. September 16, Knapp Auditorium, Ashlar Village, Cheshire Rd., Wallingford. Free, reservations requested. Call 203-265-6754.
Wallingford Public Library and Masonicare at Ashlar Village invite the public to this author tea celebrating “The Bridge Ladies: A Memoir.” Hear author Betsy Lerner's stories about how the game of Bridge sustained five Connecticut women for over fifty years.
Betsy Lerner’s book about her mom’s fifty-year-old, New Haven area, Bridge club provides an unexpected connection across a generational divide between mother and daughter. It’s a funny, intimate, and deeply affecting story that shares a little about Bridge and a lot about life.
In addition to “The Bridge Ladies,” Lerner is the author of “The Forest for the Trees” and “Food and Loathing.” She received an MFA from Columbia University in Poetry and was the recipient of a Thomas Wolfe Poetry Prize, an Academy of American Poets Poetry Prize, and was one of PEN’s Emerging Writers. She also received the Tony Godwin Publishing Prize for Editors Under 35. After working as an editor for 15 years, she became an agent and is currently a partner with Dunow, Carlson and Lerner Literary Agency.
This event is cosponsored by Wallingford Public Library and Masonicare at Ashlar Village. It will take place at the Knapp Auditorium at Ashlar Village. Refreshments will be served, advance registration is requested. Please make your reservation by contacting Wallingford Public Library at 203-265-6754 or online at www.wallingfordlibrary.org. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
