Come and laugh with one of America's leading humorists and author of the weekly Wall Street Journal column, Moving Targets, as he takes aim at some of literature's 'sacred cows' and talks about his own eccentric method of choosing what and how to read. This should be a really fun evening.
Wine, cheese and what is sure to be a lively discussion.
Kindly call to reserve a seat: 203-655-2712

“Humorist Queenan’s mordantly funny reflections on his relationships with books will resonate with many avid readers, particularly those burdened by guilt over the number of Great Books they never managed to complete. Many pages display his brilliant wit . . . But woven around these one-liners are thoughtful musings on the importance of books in the author’s life, including touching anecdotes about projects such as his effort to check out library books that no one has borrowed for five years in order to save the
books from disposal.”—Publishers Weekly
