Due to the inclement weather, the program "SECT Libraries Celebrate Wally Lamb" at the Garde Arts Center has been canceled. It will rescheduled at a future date.
The final program of "SECT Libraries Celebrate Wally Lamb" will take place at the Oasis Room at the Garde Arts Center on Sunday, February 12, at 3pm. Tickets are free, but attendees are asked to register by calling the Garde box office at 860-444-7373, ext. 1, or emailing email@example.com.
Local readers are invited to this special celebration honoring eastern Connecticut's award- winning author. Mr. Lamb will speak about his novels, answer questions from the audience and sign books.
For the past few months, area libraries have sponsored book discussions of Lamb's novels. His most recent book, I'll Take You There, centers on Felix, the fifth-grader originally featured in Wishin' and Hopin', who is now a film scholar running a Monday night movie club in the Garde.
Libraries in 11 area communities are participating: Groton Public Library, Stonington Free Library, East Lyme Public Library, Wheeler Library, Mystic & Noank Library, Waterford Public Library, Otis Library, Sprague Public Library, Janet Carlson Calvert Library, Public Library of New London and the Ledyard Libraries.
This event was made possible by a collaboration between the Garde and the libraries of SECT. Please join us as we honor distinguished Connecticut author Wally Lamb.
