Writer's Colony

Catch up with the author of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, a New York Times Bestseller and Oprah’s Book Club entry that was easily one of 2008’s most celebrated books, tonight at An Evening with David Wroblewski. Colorado resident Wroblewski will read from, discuss and sign copies of his book, a story about a Wisconsin family of dog breeders and their mute son, Edgar. “The story is a family drama, kind of a saga, about all kinds of things that happen under the circumstances,” explains Wroblewski. “The simplest summary I have for it is that it’s a boy-and-his-dog story for grownups.”

Proceeds from the event go to benefit the Broomfield and Westminster libraries, places the author has frequented to do research and write. “I think we’ll have a nice evening to talk about books and libraries and the story,” he says. “I view it as a way for me to give back to the libraries that have helped me.”

The evening starts at 7 p.m. at the Broomfield Event Center, 3 Community Park Road in Broomfield; tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. For more info and advance ticket sales, visit www.westminsterlibrary.org or call 303-404-5104.
