NEW! An Evening with Thrity Umrigar

Postby Lakewood Public Library » Mon Nov 21, 2011 1:44 pm

Spend an evening with internationally acclaimed author, Thrity Umrigar, as she celebrates the publication of her new novel at Rozi’s Wine House, 14900 Detroit Ave., in Lakewood. This event, benefiting the Lakewood Public Library Foundation, will take place on Thursday, January 5 from 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. and will feature an open bar with wine, beer and delicious bites. Books will be available for sale through local vendor Mac’s Backs and the author will be happy to sign copies of all her works.

Umrigar is the author of several novels including The Weight of Heaven and The Space Between Us—a bestseller in India and a #1 Book Sense pick in the U.S. She will be making Lakewood one of her first stops on her book tour for her latest novel, The World We Found, which is released on January 3. Focusing on the friendship of four women, The World We Found tells the story of bottled secrets, unfulfilled dreams, and the acceptance that can lead to redemption.

General admission for An Evening with Thrity Umrigar is $35.00. Those who buy tickets in advance can also reserve discounted copies of the new book that can be picked up the night of the event. Because the Foundation is a non-profit organization, $20 of the admission price is tax deductible. Admission can be purchased online at or in person (with cash or check) at both Main Library and the Madison Branch. Admission can also be purchased through the mail by sending a check to Main Library at 15425 Detroit Avenue. Please include your name, address and phone number with your request. All orders must be postmarked by December 20, 2011. Checks should be made payable to The Lakewood Public Library Foundation.

Lakewood Public Library Main Branch is located 15425 Detroit Avenue and our Madison Branch is located at 13229 Madison Ave. Visit or call (216) 226-8275 ext. 127 for more information.

While many of us believe that Lakewood is the best place to live in this country, none of us believe that we can afford to stop trying to make it better. By that same reasoning, the Lakewood Public Library Foundation tasks itself with the fortification of Lakewood Public Library. Can you imagine the Library without computers? It was the determination of the Foundation that first brought public stations with high-speed Internet to the Library’s patrons. In recent years, the Foundation has turned its attention to the next generation by providing free Princeton Review ACT test preparation courses to the city’s hungriest high school minds. By investing in our most promising youth, the Foundation aims at nothing less than preparing our community for the unknowable challenges and opportunities of the future. And by adorning the renovated Main Library with significant works of public art, the Foundation has cemented the Library's place in Lakewood culture by seeding the imaginations of visitors and creating an atmosphere of inspired learning. Come show your support for the Library, the Foundation and the future of Lakewood by joining us for this special evening.
