October 2019 / Adult
Wed 7:00 pm
This is a new group for adults interested in writing. The Westwood Writers' Group will meet once a month to:
• write together
• critique each other's work
• discuss a writing topic of interest for the group
It doesn't matter if you have been writing for years or just thinking about it. It doesn't matter if you write romance or thriller or literary fiction. It doesn't matter if you write very short fiction or 500K word novels. All are welcome!
To register, please email Anu at firstname.lastname@example.org, call 781-320-1045, or stop by the 2nd Floor Info Desk at the Main Library.

Mystery writer Hallie Ephron’s new novel asks if you can “KonMari” your spouse – Westwood Library October 23, 2019, 7 PM
Join Hallie Ephron, author of Careful What You Wish For, at the Westwood Public Library October 23, 2019, at 7PM. She’ll be talking about her new mystery novel about a professional organizer who’s married to a man who can’t pass a yard sale without stopping. Ephron, who lives in Milton, already had some firsthand experience since, for decades, she’s been happily married to a man who’s wedded to his stuff and spends his Saturday mornings happily yard sale-ing.
In a starred review, Publisher’s Weekly hailed the novel as “Outstanding… may be the first domestic thriller to weave in Marie Kondo’s decluttering theory about discarding things that don’t spark joy.” Jamie Lee Curtis reviewed it for TIME magazine, calling it “"Thrilling and suspenseful...a modern-day grown-up Nancy Drew."
Books, provided by Haley Booksellers, will be available for purchase and signing. Registration/RSVP is not required to attend, but it helpful for planning purposes. You will not need to print or present a ticket of any kind. This event is generously sponsored by The Friends of the Westwood Public Library, and is free and open to all.
