The Friends’ Annual Arnold Lecture brings NYT best-selling author Ben Coes to the main library. Coes’ international political and espionage thrillers include Power Down, Independence Day, First Strike and his newest, Trap the Devil, due in June. While fiction, Ben’s books are based on current events and are strongly influenced by friends who are or were in the military and/or intelligence circles. He began writing after a career in government, finance, and politics, including a position as campaign manager for Mitt Romney’s successful run for Governor of Massachusetts. A graduate of Columbia College, Coes was awarded the Bennett Cerf Memorial Prize for Fiction. Free and open to the public.
