The 14th Annual Millie and Martin Shapiro Author Series Featuring an Evening with Kaitlyn Greenidge

April 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Otis Library’s signature fundraiser, “Evening with an Author,” will take place on Friday, April 28, at The Spa at Norwich Inn.  The 2017 Author is Kaitlyn Greenidge.

Greenidge’s novel, We Love You, Charlie Freeman, is a timely work, full of uncomfortable yet important observations about race in our country.  Kirkus Reviews writes “…with humor, irony, and wit, Greenidge tackles this sensitive subject and crafts a light but deeply respectful take on this heavy aspect of America’s treatment of black people … A vivid and poignant coming-of-age story that is also an important exploration of family, race, and history.”  Ms. Greenidge is the winner of the 2017 Whiting Award for Fiction.

Now in its 14th year, “Evening with an Author” celebrates the spirit of Norwich and its community library.  The evening begins at 6pm with cocktails and a silent auction.  A dinner will be followed by an address and book signing by Kaitlyn Greenidge.  Tickets are $125 per person and include a copy of We Love You, Charlie Freeman.
