Elinor Lipman – “An Author Comes Home”

Author Elinor Lipman will talk with characteristic good humor about the journey from writer-hopeful (starting at Lowell High School) to award-winning novelist, and other brushes with the imps of fate. Elinor Lipman was inducted into the Lowell High Distinguished Alumni in 2005 and profiled in this year’s Salute to Women by the Lowell Sun. In 2001 she earned the New England Book Award. Lipman’s 1990 novel Then She Found Me was made into a movie in 2007 starring Bette Midler, Colin Firth and Helen Hunt.
