Teton County Library Foundation’s speaker series brings nationally recognized and award-winning writers to the valley. These featured poets, novelists, memoirists, and other great writers contribute to the community’s cultural exchange by illuminating literature and ideas.
Our next Page to the Podium presentation will take place on Thursday, October 20, 2011. Our speaker will be evocative novelist, screenplay writer, and Yale University senior lecturer, Michael Cunningham. Cunningham earned a Pulitzer Prize for his work The Hours, which was subsequently made into a movie starring Nicole Kidman as Virginia Wolff, a role for which Kidman won an Oscar. Free tickets for Cunningham's evening talk on his work, the writing life, Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway, and much more will be available with the presentation of a Teton County or Wyoming library card or card number beginning at 5 p.m, Wednesday, October 5 at the main library Front Desk or during regular hours at Alta Branch Library. Tickets limited to one per card; available first-come, first-serve. Patrons may claim tickets for friends or a spouse but must bring a library card or card number for each ticket they wish to claim.
Tickets for an Author Chat with Michael Cunningham on the evening of October 21, 2011 will be available for purchase on Wednesday, October 5 at tclib.org/authorchat.
