The Friends of the Bristol Public Library invite you to a community Author Luncheon with best-selling author Stewart O’Nan, Thursday, July 14 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, 42 Century Drive, Bristol, CT. Stewart O’Nan will discuss how he came to write three books set in Connecticut (Night Country, Circus Fire and Last Night at the Lobster) and how area libraries were of help to him. Stewart will also read from his national best-selling novel, Last Night at the Lobster, based on true events in Bristol and the local area. Doors open @ 11:30 AM.
Also, in case you missed it, Last Night at the Lobster was featured on Moyers and Company:

“When you look back to the ’70s and a lot of what we thought were important American writers, important literary writers, some of that stuff seems kind of mannered and silly and rather dated,” says Stewart O’Nan, the Regent Square writer who has collaborated with King on two books.
“You can go back and read ‘The Stand’ or ‘The Shining,’ and they’re amazing. I go back and read those books all the time. I end up buying used paperback copies just so I can take them wherever I’m going,” he says.
