Out Loud! The Metro Library Network Author Series will continue Friday night, July 18, 2014 at 7 p.m. with Elizabeth Berg, one of America’s most beloved chroniclers of female friendship, who will close out the series. The collaborative program of the Cedar Rapids, Hiawatha, and Marion Public Libraries is a free event.
Elizabeth Berg has been on the New York Times Bestseller list multiple times. Durable Goods and Joy School were both selected as one of the American Library Association’s Best Books of the Year. Talk Before Sleep was shortlisted for the Abby (American Booksellers Book of the Year). Open House was an Oprah’s Book Club Selection. In 1997, Elizabeth won the New England Booksellers Award for her body of work. She has been translated into 27 languages.
