An Afternoon with Author Wendy Lesser

Image: 

Wendy Lesser will read from her new book, Why I Read. In Why I Read, Lesser draws on a lifetime of pleasure reading and decades of editing one of the most distinguished literary magazines in the country, The Threepenny Review, to describe her love of literature. As Lesser writes in her prologue, “Reading can result in boredom or transcendence, rage or enthusiasm, depression or hilarity, empathy or contempt, depending on who you are and what the book is and how your life is shaping up at the moment you encounter it. Here the reader will discover a definition of literature that is as broad as it is broad-minded."

A reception with light refreshments, courtesy of the Friends of the Belmont Library, will take place preceding the event, and a book signing, courtesy of Books Inc., will follow.
