On Friday, 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. Charlotte Rogan spent 25 years writing novels in secret, usually while her husband was at work and her triplets were at school. After a decade of quietly crafting one of those novels, The Lifeboat, and just a few months after her 57th birthday, Ms. Rogan signed her first book contract. She will discuss the novel, her circuitous path to literary success, and the writer’s life with Litchfield County’s own Dani Shapiro, who published her first novel, "Playing With Fire", when she was 28. Ms. Shapiro has since published four more novels, two memoirs, and numerous short stories and essays. The event will be held at the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre, Warner Theatre, Torrington. A reception and book signings by both authors will follow the event.
