Local Authors at the GPL: Sarah Pirtle


About This Event

The Greenfield Public Library welcomes local author Sarah Pirtle on Wednesday, May 15 at 6:30 pm,  to discuss her novel An Outbreak of Peace.

Sarah Pirtle’s novel takes place in Franklin County in the 1980’s. In 1987 it received a national award for outstanding book of the year on world peace and was reviewed in the LA Times and the Boston Globe. Now it returns expanded with local people — Juanita and Wally Nelson, Randy Kehler and Betsy Corner — as additional characters in the book.

An Outbreak of Peace reveals true local events along with a fictional plot; teenagers in West County ask their town meeting to vote to declare peace, meaning that everyone will choose something to do that helps build the community.

Copies of her book will be available for purchase.

This program is free and open to the public.
