Otis Library’s signature fundraiser, “Evening with an Author,” will take place on Friday, May 31, at the Spa at Norwich Inn.
The 2013 Celebrity Author is New York Times bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick. He is the author of In the Heart of the Sea, winner of the National Book Award for nonfiction; Sea of Glory, winner of the Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt Naval History Prize and the Albion-Monroe Award from the National Maritime Historical Society; and Mayflower, finalist for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize in History. The Last Stand, named a New York Times Notable book, was the basis for the 2-hour PBS American Experience film Custer’s Last Stand by Stephen Ives. In April 2013 he will release Bunker Hill: A City, A Siege, A Revolution, an in-depth look at the bloodiest battle of the Revolution.
Now in its 10th year, “Evening with an Author” celebrates the spirit of Norwich and its community library. The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction. A four-course dinner will be followed by an address by Nathaniel Philbrick. Tickets are $125 per person. For information on sponsorship or to purchase tickets to this event, please call Event Chair Millie Shapiro at (860) 887-7236, the Otis Library Development Office at (860) 889-2365 ext. 127, or visit the Otis Library website at www.otislibrarynorwich.org.
