Author Visit: Hilma Wolitzer

hilma wolitzerLong Island/NYC author Hilma Wolitzer will join us for a book signing, as well as to discuss the writing of her latest novel, An Available Man (our December “He Said, She Said” Book Discussion selection),  on Friday, December 21 at 2 PM in the Theater.

Hilma Wolitzer is the author of 14 books.  Ms. Wolitzer has taught multiple creative writing programs and has received honors and fellowships from such groups as the Guggenheim Foundation, NEA, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, and the American Academy of Arts & Letters.

An Available Man received ***Starred Reviews*** from Booklist.

From Booklist: “…Wolitzer has written before of the pain of losing a partner and its aftermath, and she does it with remarkable insight, grace, and humor … A warm, keenly incisive view of life’s vicissitudes by a writer too seldom heard from.”

Copies of the book will be sold by the Friends of the Library at the event.
