One of today’s most popular authors, Amor Towles, comes to Milton to celebrate this year’s Milton Reads 2018 selection of his book, A Gentleman in Moscow.
Don’t miss his visit on Wednesday, May 16, with a book signing scheduled for 5pm and a talk starting at 6pm.
With a big crowd expected, we have reserved the Milton High School Auditorium for this special event.  Get there early and bring your book or buy one at the door!
This special Library author event is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and The Milton Library Foundation.
For those of you not yet familiar with the book, here’s a bit about the story:
On the NY Times best seller list for 54 weeks, the book centers on Count Alexander Rostov, a Russian artistocrat who, in 1922, is hauled before a Bolshevik tribunal and sentenced to confinement within the attic of a luxury hotel. His confinement sends him into a spiral of emotional discovery, as well as giving him a unique first-hand look at some of the most significant events of Russian history as they unfold outside his window. Exploring themes of justice, the psychology of the imprisoned, and finding one’s purpose in life, A Gentleman in Moscow was released to critical acclaim and was praised for its in-depth portrayal of the lead character and its detailed depiction of post-revolution Russia.
