On Tuesday, February 26, at 6:30 PM, the South End Library and FOSEL will host acclaimed author, Andre Dubus III who will read from his compelling memoir, Townie.

Townie was the 2011 New York Times Editors' Choice. Dubus III has published five other novels-- among themHouse of Sand and Fog, made into an Academy-award nominated movie,-- teaches at U Mass Lowell, and will come out with his next novel, Dirty Love, later this year. Author and essayist Doug Bauer will introduce him. For details, including all of the recent visiting authors' five favorite books, please visit our web site at www.friendsofsouthendlibrary.org.
