Join us as celebrated local authors share their stories, describe their process, and offer ‘behind-the-text’ accounts of their works. 2nd Wednesday night of the month, June-September at 6:30 pm. July's Author: Ruta Sepetys, author of Out of the Easy. From Ruta: “Between Shades of Gray” was my first published novel and was inspired by my father who escaped from Lithuania when he was a young boy. I cried a lot while writing the book and will probably get teary discussing it with you. I am intensely proud to be Lithuanian, even if that means I have a name no one can pronounce. “Out of the Easy” is my second novel and combines my love for New Orleans, historical scandal, and the idea that we are most perfect in our imperfection. So that’s a bit about me.
