Book Discussion of Snow in August with Michael Bielawa and reflections on Pete Hamill's life.

Celebrated journalist, novelist, essayist and editor Pete Hamill passed in August of this year.  His career as a writer spanned decades.
He covered politics, sports, and arts in several New York City newspapers and wrote novels, short stories, screenplays, biographies, and memoirs.  
Included among his works is the national best-selling novel  
Snow in August. We will briefly revisit Pete Hamill's life and career, followed by a discussion of the book facilitated by baseball historian and author Michael Bielawa.  
Virtual Event 
Fairfield Public Library invites you to help complete our second virtual StickTogether community wide puzzle.

Working together let's see how long it takes to complete this almost 4,000 sticker piece work of art.  
What will the final picture be?  The only way to find out is to start "sticking."! 
Each household may place 50 stickers per day.
