The Friends of the Library will celebrate the 50th Golden Anniversary this year of its signature “Annual Book & Author Luncheon” on Friday, May 10 at the North Hills Country Club in Manhasset.
The two featured authors will be Meg Wolitzer and Anthony Tommasini.
Award-winning novelist and Long Island native Wolitzer will speak on her best-seller “The Female Persuasion,” an absorbing look at female power and self-determination, which was recently selected as the 2019 Long Island Reads pick.
Tommasini, the chief classical music critic for The New York Times, will discuss his book “The Indispensable Composers: A Personal Guide”, a master class in what greatness means in music.
Port’s own bestselling novelist Susan Isaacs returns as program moderator.
