Share

The Warren Public Library and the Friends of the Warren Public Library are very proud to present author Elmore Leonard and his son, author Peter Leonard, for a talk on Thursday, November 8 and 6 p.m. at the Warren Civic Center Library.

Author of such classics as Get Shorty, Killshot, Tishomingo Blues, and the recently released novel Raylan, Elmore Leonard is one of America’s great novelists. He has won multiple awards, including the Edgar Award in 1984 for his novel La Brava and the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009. On November 14, 2012, he will receive the The National Book Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He has been called “the greatest living crime writer” by The New York Times.

His son, Peter Leonard, is the author of several novels including Quiver, Voices of the Dead, and All He Saw Was the Girl. He has been called “a genuinely gifted storyteller” by Booklist. In describing Peter, author Carl Hiaasen says “clearly, great storytelling runs in the Leonard family’s DNA”.

Don’t miss your chance to meet Elmore and Peter Leonard! This event will take place in the Conference Room outside of the Civic Center Library. Books will be available to be signed at this event. To register, call 586.574.4564.
