Hungry for Literature?

Then you may be in luck.

On May 26 The Friends of the Fairfield Public Library will hold its 2nd Annual Ladies' Literary Luncheon with special guest, Kelly Corrigan. 


Corrigan is the best-selling author of "The Middle Place" and "Lift", the former a memoir of the author's fight with cancer, and the later, a letter penned to her two young daughters about their particular relationship and parenthood in general.  Both the hardcover and paperback versions of Corrigan's first book, "The Middle Place," spent numerous weeks on the New York Times Bestsellers List, and in March, 2010, her second book, "Lift", was No. 2 on the paper's list for Hardcover Non-Fiction Bestsellers.


The luncheon, a fundraiser for the Friends, will take place from noon to 2 p.m.  at The Patterson Club in Fairfield, and Corrigan will be speaking to a sold-out crowd of 240 women. 

The Friends will have copies of The Middle Place and Lift for sale, and there will be a book signing following the luncheon.  In addition, the Friends will have an array of themed baskets to be raffled during the event.

The Middle Place is beautifully written and pulls no punches. Kelly is an accomplished woman...she has done so many things in her young life...the traveling alone is very impressive! Her devotion to her dad is touching and it breaks your heart that she has to divide herself between caring for him and fighting cancer herself...truly an amazing spirit.
