Meet the winner and the finalists of the self-published fiction competition of the Morristown Festival of Books at Bernardsville Public Library on Sunday, November 4 at 3:00 pm. Winner Dee Ernst, author of “A Safe Place to Land,” S.W. Hubbard, who wrote “Treasure in Exile,” and Kim Sullivan Harwanko and Jeanne Ann, two members of the Between Friends Book Club which, as a group, wrote “Novel Women,” will have a roundtable discussion about their books, their writing process, and the road to publication. Books will be available for purchase and signing. This was the first year in which the Morristown Festival of Books featured self-published authors. A committee of twenty-one readers read the submissions and selected the winner. The committee was chaired by Bernardsville Readers' Services Manager Pat Kennedy-Grant who also moderated the Morristown Festival of Books panel discussion. The winner, Dee Ernst, a New Jersey native who now lives in Mt. Tabor, decided early to become a writer. It wasn't until the age of forty, however, that she resolved to give writing a real shot.

Leonard Bernstein at 100

November 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
$25 – $75

Leonard Bernstein was born on August 25, 1918, and even now, 28 years after his death, he dominates the American music scene. From West Side Story to Chichester Psalms, from Candide to the MASS, from On the Town to his three symphonies, he composed a canon of music that is broader, more popular, and more singular, than any other that has been originated in this country. As a conductor, he was famous the world over, a force of nature on the podium, just as he was at the keyboard. As a teacher, he pioneered the use of television for music education in his Young People’s Concerts. As a public personality, he was widely known as an often outspoken social activist. On Sunday, November 4, at Pingry School, Stephen Sands leads the Somerset Hills Chorus in an orchestral and choral salute to New York’s greatest musician, featuring a performance of Chichester Psalms and excerpts from West Side Story and Candide.
