New Canaan Library to Host Pulitzer Prize Winner Anthony Doerr at 8th Annual Literary Luncheon

New Canaan Library officials announced Tuesday that the writer to be honored at this fall’s literary luncheon is none other than Anthony Doerr, who this week was named Pulitzer Prize winner for his massively popular novel “All the Light We Cannot See.”

The 8th Annual Literary Luncheon will be held Nov. 4 at Woodway Country Club. The library’s director of development, Ellen Crovatto, said she’s “thrilled” for Doerr on the award and “very pleased that he will be our guest” at the luncheon. “It’s a tremendous honor and privilege that the library gets to present him in the community,” she said. “This will be his only area appearance in the fall.”

As in years past, the library will hold a ‘benefactor’ presale with additional tickets made available in the fall.
