Watertown Library Co-Hosting James Patterson, Jeff Benedict at Virtual Author Talks

Bestselling author James Patterson will speak with Hank Phillippi Ryan about his two upcoming books on Dec. 15 and on Dec. 17 Jeff Benedict will discuss his book about the New England Patriots’ Dynasty.

The Watertown Library sent out the following announcement:

The holiday season always brings an abundance of new and highly anticipated books by prominent authors. This year, the Watertown Free Public Library (WFPL) is partnering with local booksellers and neighbor libraries to bring a few of those bestselling authors to Watertown – virtually, of course!

On December 15, join authors James Patterson and Hank Phillippi Ryan as they discuss two of Patterson’s forthcoming books; Deadly Cross and The Last Days of John Lennon, written with Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge. This virtual author talk is co-sponsored by WFPL, Hachette Book Group, and the Haley Booksellers.

Then on December 17, Jeff Benedict will share how he researched his instant bestseller, The Dynasty, and crafted the inside story of New England Patriots’ 20-year rise to NFL dominance. This event is co-sponsored by seven regional libraries including WFPL.

“We’re thrilled to bring prominent authors to our community to discuss their books,” says WFPL Adult Services Supervisor Jill Clements, “and we pledge to continue to find creative ways to partner with libraries, bookstores, and publishers to offer Watertown residents top-notch programs as we face this pandemic together.”

WFPL’s virtual author talks are free and open to the public. Both events begin at 7 PM and registration is required. Learn more and register atwatertownlib.org/calendar
