MEET ELLEN MEISTER: One of the most audacious wits of 20th century America served as inspiration for Ellen Meister’s newest novel, Farewell, Dorothy Parker (Berkley Trade, 2013). In a lively discussion, Long Island resident Ellen Meister will talk about how she got the idea, what it was like to capture the brassy jazz era figure in a contemporary novel, and why Dorothy Parker’s voice is still as resonant and irreverent as ever. Refreshments will be served. Books will be available for purchase and signing.Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. 7:30 p.m.
