Barbara Delinsky, the national bestselling author and lifelong resident of suburban Boston, will present “An Author’s Roots: From One Small Library to the World.” She will discuss her evolution as a writer, and the impact of a library on that evolution.

Since 1981, Ms. Delinsky has published more than 70 novels. A master of emotional intensity, she touches the minds and hearts of her readers with intricately woven stories of domestic drama and relationships. Her newest hardcover, Looking for Peyton Place, was published in July 2005, and her next, Family Tree, will be out in February 2007. Several of her books have been optioned for television movies, including A Woman’s Place, produced for Lifetime as “Custody of the Heart.”

Ms. Delinsky has also published two nonfiction books: Does a Lobsterman Wear Pants? and UPLIFT: Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Tufts University and a master’s degree in sociology from Boston College.
