Books In Common Supported Events!

Christina Baker Kline, NYT Best Selling author of Orphan Train, visited the community of Woodstock, CT in February. Coordinator Deb Sharpe: “Her presentation was loved by everyone.  I have gotten several positive emails from our patrons already!  I would highly recommend her to any library.  Thanks for your help in getting her here!”

Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet and Songs of Willow Frost, signs books at The Bancroft School.



 Jamie Ford Hosted by The Bancroft School.Cultural Events Coordinator Hannah Hall Alicandro: “Our students loved his program.  He spoke right at their level and struck a good balance between humor and answering questions about writing.  I think my only suggestion would be to include a few more stories about his father and what it was like for Jamie to grow up with his family heritage.”
