Wednesday, January 16th at 6:30 p.m., best-selling author Jane Hamilton will be joining the women’s book group in the Mezzanine of the Public Library. She will be sharing her writing experiences and conversing about her works. 

Hamilton's first two novels, "The Book of Ruth" and "A Map of the World," were Oprah's Book Club selections. "The Book of Ruth" also won the PEN/Hemingway Foundation Award for first fiction. Each book was later the basis for a motion picture. She has also written "Disobedience," "When Madeline Was Young" and her latest book, "Laura Rider's Masterpiece."

Hamilton will join members of the Luther English department to teach the January term course "Adventures in Reading and Writing Fiction." As part of her Luther J Term visit, Hamilton will give a reading at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, January 17th, in the Center for Faith and Life Recital Hall. Learn more < HERE >.  

Both events are open to the public free of charge.
