STAMFORD, CT - Wally Lamb, an internationally-acclaimed novelist who unflinchingly explores complicated contemporary issues, will discuss his latest work, We are Water, on Thursday, December 5 at 6 p.m. at The Ferguson Library’s Third Floor Auditorium, Bedford & Broad Streets, Stamford. Tickets are $15, with proceeds to benefit the Library. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a wine reception. Appetizers generously provided by Mitchell's Fish Market, Patrizia's of Stamford and Morton's the Steakhouse. Program at 6:30. Book sale, signing and a raffle of Wally Lamb's books to follow. Register at www.fergusonlibrary.org.

A Connecticut native, Lamb has received numerous awards and is also the author of She's Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True, both of which were Oprah’s Book Club picks.

His latest work centers on the Ohs, a seemingly well-adjusted family in suburban Connecticut whose lives have been upended by the mother’s decision to leave marriage of 27 years, and have an affair with a female art dealer in New York.

As the family prepares to come back to Connecticut for the wedding of the two women, long-held secrets are finally revealed, allowing the family to come to grips with the past and begin to heal.

A family saga that is hard to put down, this is a multi-layered novel about love and resilience that stays with the reader long after the book is finished.
