FOML 2017 Authors Luncheon
The Friends of the Moffat Library held their annual Authors Luncheon this past Sunday at the lovely Round Hill House.  All were entertained by Larry Beinhart and
Lynne Tillman, as they reminisced about their writing lives.  

The event began at 12 noon and the luncheon and talks began after an open bar, courtesy of the Round Hill House, where the luncheon took place.

After speaking, the authors engaged in a spirited one-on-one with attendees during the Q&A session.  Both authors were on hand afterwards to sign copies of their books and talk with attendees.  It was a lively and enlightening day for everyone!

The Friends would like to extend their special thanks
to all the generous sponsors of this event.
