It’s easy to spend hours amongst Kepler’s well-cultivated book collection in all genres and for all ages. But after-hours is when some real magic happens. The Kepler’s Literary Foundation enriches the community through literary and cultural programs that feature notable and influential writers, artists, and original thinkers.
On October 11, authors Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) and Adam Silvera (More Happy Than Not) are visiting to discuss their highly anticipated new novel What If It’s Us. Named one of the most important writers of the 20th century by Writers Digest, Barbara Kingsolver arrives on October 23 to discuss her new novel, Unsheltered. Kids will love to meet Jeffrey Brown, author/illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Jedi Academy books. He will be introducing Bad to the Bones, Book 3 on October 26. Pulitzer Prize-winner Dave Barry rounds out the month on October 29—and your dog is invited, too! Barry is here to discuss his new book, Lessons from Lucy, where he looks to his dog Lucy for both companionship and as a model for how to grow old with grace. This very diverse lineup proves that there is something for everyone amongst the Kepler’s stacks.
