Wellesley College Alumnae of Boston hosts the annual Authors on Stage event at Wellesley College Club on May 4, with coffee at 9:45am and the program following at 10:30am. The event costs $27 per person and you can stick around for lunch for another $16.
Here’s this year’s line-up of authors:
Barry Meier: MISSING MAN: The American Spy Who Vanished in Iran
Meier draws on years of interviews and never before disclosed CIA files for his narrative of Robert Levinson’s journey to Iran and the hunt (still active) to rescue him.
Jim Lynch: BEFORE THE WIND
Lynch grew up in the world of sailors, and his new novel is a grand saga of the sailing-obsessed Johannssen family, where the past and the present merge seamlessly and collide surprisingly.
Laura Claridge: THE LADY WITH THE BORZOI: Blanche Knopf, Literary Tastemaker Extraordinaire
Blanche Knopf began her career when she founded Alfred A. Knopf with her husband in 1915. With her finger on the pulse of a rapidly changing culture, she became a driving force behind the firm that defined much of American literature in the 20th century.
