Nutmeg Authors Live @ the Library

Calling all fans of great children’s literature! Thanks to a generous grant from HSBC Bank USA, N.A., the Ridgefield Library is pleased to offer a series of presentations this spring and summer by authors of 2010 Nutmeg Children’s Book Award nominees.

The Nutmeg Children’s Book Awards offer Connecticut youngsters in grades 4 through 8 the opportunity to read from lists of nominated titles and then vote in January for their favorite book.

To add to the interest and excitement, the Ridgefield Library and HSBC have paired up to bring to town some of the dynamic and talented authors of this year’s nominees. Nutmeg Authors Live @ the Library continues on Wednesday, May 20th with Jen Bryant, author of “Pieces of Georgia.”

Kids and other readers of all ages are invited to hear Jen speak at 4:00 PM in the Dayton Program Room. Copies of her book will be available for sale and signing, courtesy of Books on the Common.

From 5:00 to 6:00 PM, teachers, parents, librarians, aspiring writers and other interested adults are welcome to join us for a wine and cheese reception and a chance to chat with Jen.

Mark your calendars now for appearances by Susan Beth Pfeffer on June 1st and Cynthia Lord on July 20th.
