Southbury, CT - On Wednesday, May 16, The Watermark at East Hill will host its 20th annual Book & Author Luncheon. The event will take place at noon at the retirement community, located at 611 East Hill Road in Southbury. The luncheon will feature authors Sue Reich, Charles Atkins and Joyce Ware. The fee for the luncheon is $25.00 and will benefit the East Hill Library Fund.

“Our annual Book & Author Luncheon is a well-loved tradition here at East Hill, and is a great way for people to enjoy readings from well-known local authors,” said Rhoda Ashley, East Hill resident and Chairperson of the event. “All of the money raised goes to the East Hill Library Fund, so that residents can continue to learn and grow for years to come.”

Reich has been making quilts since childhood and has written two books on the art of quilt making. She also co-wrote the book Quilts and Quiltmakers Covering Connecticut. Reich has also appraised quilts and was a guest curator at several museums including the New England Quilt Museum. Reich has also lectured at the Quilter’s Hall of Fame and served as chairperson for several quilt guild shows.

Atkins is known for writing the Barrett Conyors forensic thriller series but has also recently released a new series called Vultures at Twilight, featuring two female sleuths. Atkins writes both fiction and non-fiction. He is a board-certified psychiatrist and member of the Yale Clinical Faculty. Atkins has published two non-fiction books on Bipolar Disorder and Alzheimer’s disease and is a contributor to the American Medical Association’s American Medical News.

Ware, a resident of The Watermark at East Hill, is an accomplished author, publishing six novels, one children’s book, and three books on rug collecting. Her fictional work includes the gothic novel The Lost Heiress of Hawkscliffe and the more mainstream romance novel, Colorado High. Her children’s e-book, The Dragon Whisperer, is her first book aimed at children ages 8 to 12. In addition to her fictional work, Ware also has an interest in oriental rugs and has written three original guides on rug collecting.

Guests are encouraged to RSVP by May 2. Receipt of your $25.00 per person donation will confirm your reservation. Checks can be made payable to the East Hill Library Fund, Attn: Cecily Goodman, 219 Birchwood, Southbury, CT 06488.
