Bestselling author, screenwriter and playwright Delia Ephron makes a special appearance at the Library to discuss her career as well as her delightful new novel 'The Lion Is In.' The event includes a book signing and books will be for sale.

Delia Ephron's screenwriting credits include the hit movies 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,' 'Bewitched,' 'You've Got Mail,' 'Hanging Up' (based on her novel), and 'Michael.' She was also the producer of the timeless comedy 'Sleepless In Seattle.'

She has written several critically acclaimed novels for adults and teenagers, books of humor, including 'How to Eat Like a Child,' and essays. Her journalism has appeared in The New York Times, O: The Oprah Magazine, Vogue, More, and The Huffington Post.

Recently, Delia collaborated with her sister, Nora Ephron, on a play, 'Love, Loss, and What I Wore,' which just completed an acclaimed two year run off-Broadway and has been performed in cities around the world, including Paris, Rio de Janeiro, and Sydney.

'The Lion Is In' is full of "smart, snappy dialogue" according to Booklist and is the story of three women, who, one warm summer's night, go on the lam together. When their car breaks down on a rural highway in North Carolina, they're forced to seek shelter in a seemingly abandoned nightclub. Which is where they meet Marcel (a retired circus lion) - and soon everything changes.
