Oct. 20, 2010: Richard C. Morais, author of The Hundred-Foot Journey (Scribner 2010), will read from his acclaimed first novel on Friday, October 29 at 6:00 PM in the Donnelley Theatre in the Heimbold Visual Arts Center, Sarah Lawrence College. Morais is a 1981 graduate of the College.

The event celebrates the 35th anniversary of the founding of the Friends of the Sarah Lawrence College Library and is free and open to the public. A book signing and reception will follow Morais' reading.

The Hundred-Foot Journey has been critically acclaimed, receiving such endorsements this past summer as: New York Times "editors' choice"; NPR's "Literary Destination"; "favorite summer read" by O, The Oprah Magazine; Amazon: Kindle editors' one of the 10 best books of June.

Among the praise for The Hundred-Foot Journey:

"Easily the best novel ever set in the world of cooking—and absolutely thrilling from beginning to end."—Anthony Bourdain, author of Kitchen Confidential

"Hilarious romp through life, love, and the workings of a French kitchen."—O, The Oprah Magazine

Born in Portugal, Morais lived much of his life in Switzerland before attending Sarah Lawrence, graduating in 1981. Much of his career as a journalist was at Forbes magazine, including serving as European Bureau Chief from 1998–2003.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
