January 23-Author Talk with internationally syndicated columnist Leslie Handler

January 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Join us on January 23 from noon to 1 p.m. at the State Library in the Level 2 Reading Room for a talk entitled, Rats, Mice and Other Things you can’t take to the Bank.

This book is an inspirational collection of essays from humorous to simply human.  Its stories will take you from finding a mouse in the house to the mortgage crisis, from a smile to a chuckle and from a few tears to the feeling of being wrapped in a blanket sipping a warm cup of cocoa on a cold winter’s day.  That’s a lot in one book!

Leslie Handler is a 2015 Society of Newspaper Columnists award winner. She’s an international syndicated columnist with Senior Wire News Service and a frequent contributor to WHYY News, and has written for The Philadelphia Inquirer, ZestNow, Boomercafe, and The Huffington Post. Her first book is Rats, Mice and Other Things You Can’t Take to the Bank. Leslie currently lives smack dab between Philadelphia and New York City with husband Marty, dogs Maggie, Hazel, and Ginger, a collection of fish, said husband’s cockatoo, which she’s been trying to roast for dinner for the last 33 years, and a few occasional uninvited guests. You may follow her blog and read published essays at lesliegoesboom.com.

Please feel free to join us at this free event. All are welcome. RSVP is appreciated to Cindy Warrick at cwarrick@njstatelib.org or 609-278-2640 ext. 172.
