Premier Book Vendor For Wally-Marilyn Young Writers Bash


The Connecticut Young Writers Trust is pleased to announce the UConn-Coop, run by 2008 Connecticut Center for the Book Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Suzy Staubach, will be on site at the Hartford Club on Friday, April 13th, to sell books by Wally Lamb and Marilyn Nelson who will be happy to sign them at the benefit performance.

  • About Suzy Staubach

  • Come meet two of our finest living writers, Marilyn Nelson and Wally Lamb, at an exclusive cocktail hour at the
  • Hartford Club
  • @ 46 Prospect Street Hartford, CT 06103 on Friday, April 13th from 6 PM to 7 PM, prior to a public performance and conversation with the writers at 7 PM.

    Marilyn Nelson is fresh off receiving the
  • Frost Medal
  • presented annually by the Poetry Society of America for "distinguished lifetime achievement in poetry"

    And Wally Lamb was just featured on American Masters on PBS discussing Harper Lee's
  • "To Kill a Mockingbird."

  • Seats for the reception are a $100 tax-deductible contribution to the Connecticut Young Writers Trust, the state's longest literary competition for teens, now in its 15th year and having given away more than $200,000 in prize money to affirm young writers. Seating is VERY limited so RSVP now to for the chance to get books signed, photos taken, and have conversation with Wally and Marilyn in an intimate setting, and stay to hear them perform their work and talk about their craft.

    After 7 p.m., the suggested minimum donation is $10. That alone would help defray cost of the event.

    Thanks for your support. We look forward to seeing you on Friday, April 13th.
