Poeppel, Lipman to give book talk

Kent Memorial Library and House of Books will co-sponsor a conversation between Kent author Amy Poeppel and author Elinor Lipman Aug. 20 at 7 p.m. via Zoom.

They will discuss Poeppel’s recently published book “Musical Chairs.”

“The book has many referrences to a small town in Litchfield County with a little red brick Library and many other Kent-like locations,” said Lucy Pierpont, Kent Memorial Library marketing and special events director. “I’m waiting to meet a character I might really know, but alas, I’ve only found composites.

”It’s a great book,” Pierpont said. “I don’t blame Parade Magazine for adding it to its list of some of the best new books for July 2020.”
