Author Events - Elm Street Books in October
Wow, do we have authors for you in October!!!!

October 2, 7:00pm, New Canaan Library

Lee Woodruff @ the New Canaan Library, 151 Main Street, New Canaan

Those We Love Most” is Lee Woodruff’s first novel, following her essay collection, “Perfectly Imperfect,” and a work of nonfiction called “In an Instant.” That powerful book, co-written with her husband, ABC news anchor Bob Woodruff, chronicled their family’s life in the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury Bob suffered while embedded with the U.S. military in Iraq. Her new novel explores some of the same themes: A sudden tragedy strikes one person, leading many others along a complex emotional path that winds in and around an entire family.

Reservations - 914-234-7800

In her sharp-witted - and often laugh out loud funny - memoir, ALI IN WONDERLAND, actress, comedian and writer Ali Wentworth shares her real-life adventures through the looking glass: from a Washington, DC childhood as the daughter of a White House social secretary, to years in the casting trenches of Hollywood, and back to Washington as the wife of George Stephanopoulos. In between there was a rough stint at an all-girl boarding school, misspent college years, and a few decades of soured relationships - all priceless comic material from the woman who has made us laugh on Oprah, In Living Color, and Seinfeld and in the pages of Marie Claire and Vogue.
