Event Details

The Friends of the Library are pleased to host Amor Towles and Phillip Lewis at this year's Book and Author events

Amor Towles Amor Towles was born and raised in the Boston area. He graduated from Yale University and received an MA in English from Stanford University. An investment professional for more than twenty years, he now devotes his time to writing. Mr. Towles' debut novel, "Rules of Civility," published in 2011, was a New York Times Best Seller. Mr. Towles has been published in fifteen languages and his work has been optioned by Lionsgate to be made into a feature film. His latest work, "A Gentleman in Moscow," was published in September 2016 and has received extensive praise.
Phillip Lewis Phillip Lewis was born and raised in West Jefferson, in the mountains of North Carolina. He attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and later received a law degree from Campbell University. He is an attorney with the Horack Talley Firm in Uptown Charlotte. "The Barrowfields," Lewis' breathtaking debut novel, explores the darker side of devotion, the limits of forgiveness, and the question of whether identity is forever bound to where you come from.

 The event also has a related event: a Book and Author Luncheon (separate ticket is required) on March 7.
