Postponed – Becker, Dukess, and Newman: On Writing, Life and What Else Matters

May 14, 2020 7:00 PM — 8:00 PM


This event was temporarily postponed. We will be sure to post the new date and time when it is confirmed.

Suzy Becker, Karen Dukess, and Catherine Newman invite you to join them for an evening of casual conversation. The nationally acclaimed authors will read from their own works (and each others’), share their thoughts on all manner of things, and answer questions—theirs, yours, and some humdingers from this year’s MCAS.

Suzy Becker is the author-illustrator of eleven books, including the international bestseller All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat and the illustrated memoirs I Had Brain Surgery, What’s Your Excuse and One Good Egg.

Karen Dukess quit her day job as a UN speechwriter with the success of her first novel The Last Book Party. The book was a 2019 New York Times “Great Summer Read,” IndieNext pick and Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers title. She is at work on her second novel, which draws on her years working as a journalist in Russia.

Catherine Newman is the author of five books, including the parenting memoir Waiting for Birdy and the brand new illustrated kids’ life guide How to Be a Person. She is the etiquette columnist for Real Simple and the editor of ChopChop, a nonprofit cooking magazine for kids.


Wine reception and book signing in partnership with the Concord Bookshop to follow.
