WestportREADS: Author David Handler on the Book, The Man Who Would Be F. Scott Fitzgerald
David Handler has written eight novels about the witty and dapper celebrity ghostwriter Stewart Hoag and his faithful basset hound, Lulu, including the Edgar and American Mystery award-winning The Man Who Would Be F. Scott Fitzgerald. He has also written eight novels featuring the mismatched crime-fighting duo of New York film critic Mitch Berger and Connecticut state trooper Desiree Mitry.
Join us for an afternoon of reminiscences as we revisit Hoagie and Lulu, and learn more about Mitch and Des and their latest case, The Snow White Christmas Cookie, an appropriately wintry tale.
Books will be available for purchase and signing. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Library.
Special Opportunity: Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald lived in Westport briefly in 1920, and to celebrate their time here, former SHS English teacher Dr. Gerry Kuroghlian will give a talk about their experience in town. Twenty lucky winners will be chosen in a drawing to attend the February 2 talk, which will be at the house the Fitzgeralds rented on South Compo Road. You will receive an opportunity to enter the drawing at each WestportREADS event attended.
