11/30 ILEAD Book & Author Lunch

From the President's Corner column in the Fall 2012 ILEAD newsletter:

For those of you who have lived in the Upper Valley for at least six years, you may remember the annual Book & Author breakfasts and lunches sponsored by the Friends of the Hopkins Center and the Hood Museum. That very popular event started in 1979, but had its last session in 2006, when the Friends of the Hop and Hood dissolved because of new marketing directions from both organizations.

I am thrilled to announce that this November, ILEAD is bringing back the Book & Author lunch as a pilot program. On Friday, November 30, local author W. D. Wetherell, A Century of November, and Ross McIntyre,  Paddle Beads, will be our guests and discuss their books. This very special event will be held at the Marriott Courtyard at Centerra Park. The format will be similar to how the event was run by the Friends. Each author will speak about their book, answer questions, and afterwards, autograph their books that will be for sale.  

Pete Bleyler

The price is $28 per ticket. Please contact the ILEAD office at 603-646-0154 for more information and to reserve a seat.

We will be bringing books to this event, and will have Walter Wetherell's new novel, The Writing on the Wall, available also.

For those whose hands have not yet grown a paddle callus, McIntyre offers a glimpse of what to expect as a canoe paddle becomes a real companion.
