Catch up with the author of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
, a New York Times Bestseller and Oprahs Book Club entry that was easily one of 2008s 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 its 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 well 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.
