Wilton Library’s 128th Annual Meeting and Author Talk
June 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFREE
Wilton Library’s 128th Annual Meeting will include the election of the new trustees and officers, a celebration of those who are retiring from the Board of Trustees, and the presentation of awards for Wilton Library’s outstanding volunteer and staff person of the year.
Immediately following the meeting, the guest speaker will be Wilton author Dr. Mark Rubinstein. Dr. Rubinstein will discuss how mysteries and thrillers have thrived through the ages. What are their defining characteristics? How do they differ from each other and why are they enjoyed by so many generations of readers? Did Shakespeare write thrillers? What about Hemingway and Dostoyevsky? Why have mysteries and thrillers endured for centuries? And why are today’s bestseller lists populated by so many of them?
Dr. Rubinstein’s high-octane thrillers Mad Dog House and its sequel Mad Dog Justice were both finalists for the Foreward Book of the Year Award. The Lovers’ Tango won the gold medal in Popular Fiction at the Benjamin Franklin Awards. He has been a contributor to the Huffington Post, was a contributor to Psychology Today, contributes columns to Literary Hub’s Crime Reads, and is a book reviewer for the New York Journal of Books.
Registration is required. Register on the Wilton Library website.
