Program Description

Event Details

Join us for a book talk/signing by Ann Leary, author of the "The Foundling".

From Ann Leary, the New York Times bestselling author of The Good House, comes a novel about two childhood friends who meet again years later at a controversial asylum—one as an employee; the other, an inmate. Loosely based on a true story about the author’s grandmother.

Ann Leary is the New York Times bestselling author of a memoir and four novels including The Good House. Her work has been translated into eighteen languages, and she has written for the New York Times, Ploughshares, National Public Radio, Redbook, and Real Simple, among other publications. Her essay, “Rallying to Keep the Game Alive,” was adapted for the Amazon Modern Love television series. She lives with her husband in New York.

Like all Southbury Public Library programs, this event is free to attend and open to anyone regardless of town of residency. Registration is required. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library. For more information about this program, please email Rebecca at or call the reference desk at 203-262-0626 ext 130.
