As part of the One Book, One City program for the Culver City Centennial, the Friends of the Library are pleased to announce that in addition to the appearance by Stewart O’Nan, author of West of Sunset on Saturday, October 15, we have a second author visit scheduled. Lesley M.M. Blume, author of Everybody Behaves Badly, will be at the Culver City Julian Dixon Library on Thursday, September 29 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss her book. Everybody Behaves Badly is a non-fiction look at Ernest Hemingway and the writing of his novel, The Sun Also Rises. The close relationship between Hemingway and Fitzgerald is an important part of the story, and does an excellent job of adding context to the reading of West of Sunset which explores the later years of Fitzgerald’s career. A look at Ms. Blume’s blog and her reflections on F. Scott Fitzgerald can be seen at this link: http://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2016/06/07/falling-for-fitzgerald/
We hope you can join us at both of these events. For more information, go to the Friends of the Library website at http://ccfol.org
Copies of the book are available to check out at the Culver City Julian Dixon library.
