It is an honor to host onstage, together, esteemed and beloved novelists Richard Russo and Anita Shreve. Between them, they have published some thirty books, most best-sellers, several turned into movies starring such actors as Paul Newman and Jessica Tandy (Nobody's Fool), Sean Penn (The Weight of Water), and Julia Ormond (Resistance). Russo, also a successful screenwriter, won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel "Empire Falls;" Shreve, who is currently touring for her latest book, "The Stars Are Fire," wrote the Oprah's Book Club selection "The Pilot's Wife." Both committed New Englanders, Russo and Shreve will talk about life, literature, and anything else they please. Twenty Summers cofounder Julia Glass will moderate.
