Meet Author Lauren Fox

Did you know that you have a best-selling author living and writing right down the street? 

It's true! We're even lucky enough to call her a library patron. Lauren Fox, author of Still Life with Husband and Friends Like Us, will be here on Tuesday, September 15 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss her latest novel, Days of Awe, and talk about writing to an audience of neighbors, fans, and aspiring writers.

Fox especially wants to reach that latter group: writers, published or still dreaming, of all ages. With this visit from Fox, we are continuing the work started by Nickolas Butler when he visited during Shorewood Reads in April: making the library, a place known for books, a place for writers to do their work, learn from each other, and make more books. 

Know a hopeful writer who would benefit from meeting a published one? Bring them to the library!
