Stillwater High School Auditorium
07:00 PM - 09:00 PM on Fri, 29 Jul 2022
Enjoy a visit with New York Times best selling author, Elizabeth Berg, as she brings the charm, wit, and wisdom of Arthur Truluv and his chosen family to life with readings and a Q&A session. If you haven’t met Arthur yet, you really need to! The Mason, Missouri series includes the The Story of Arthur Truluv, The Night of Miracles, and The Confession Club.
“Find refuge in Mason, a place blessedly free of the political chaos we now know as ‘real life.’ In Berg’s charming but far from shallow alternative reality, the focus is on the things that make life worth living: the human connections that light the way through the dark of aging, bereavement, illness and our own mistakes. . . . As the endearing, odd-lot characters of Mason, Missouri, coalesce into new families, dessert is served: a plateful of chocolate-and-vanilla pinwheel cookies for the soul.”—USA Today
After sharing a personal essay on libraries, she will then take questions from the audience and stay for book signing. Friday, July 29th at 7PM in the HS Auditorium. Tickets are $50 – all proceeds to benefit the Stillwater Public Library building project.
