LARCHMONT, N.Y. -- The Friends of the Larchmont Public Library, in conjunction with the Westchester Review, will present readings by authors who will appear in the Review's 2014 edition.
The reading will take place on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 4 p.m. in the Larchmont Village Center, located directly behind the library.
Published annually, the Westchester Review highlights unpublished poems, stories and essays by writers who have lived, studied or worked in Westchester County.
Attendees will be able to meet and greet the authors, enjoy refreshments and listen to readings from the authors themselves as curated by the Review.
According to Larchmont Library publicity chair Geoff Colquitt, the library does its best to give local authors exposure.
"We do as much as we possibly can to get local authors to come in and read from their books. We will never charge admission for an event, but we support them as much as we can. Those relationships are very important," he said.
Colquitt added that the Westchester Review has a close relationship with the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library.
"One of the heads of the Friends, Amy Ralston-Seife, is on the editorial board of the Westchester Review. So, it is not quite a direct relationship but close to that," he said.
Featured authors from the 2014 edition will include: Larchmont residents Ben Zuckert, Zoe Malone, Anthony Hosey and Oliver Paré; New Rochelle residents Julie Domonkos and Herb Friedman; Scarsdale residents Linda Hillman Chayes and Bonnie Jill Emanuel and Mount Vernon residents Daphne Carter McKnight, Wendy Zierler and James Zimmerman.
The Westchester Review is available in local bookstores throughout Westchester County including Anderson’s Book Shop in Larchmont, Womrath’s Book Shop in Bronxville and Arcade Book Sellers in Rye.
