Join us this fall for three special author talks, including our culminating One Book One Belmont event, “Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley,” (2016) with author Charlotte Gordon. 

Author Lindsay Mattick to discuss Winnie’s Great War (2018)

Monday, September 17th at 7pm in the Library Assembly Room

As the great-granddaughter of Captain Harry Colebourn, the Canadian soldier and veterinarian that bought and  trained the bear cub that went on to inspire author A.A. Milne, Lindsay Mattick grew up thinking of Winnie as her own ‘great-grandbear’.

Winnie’s Great War is her second book on Winnie-the-Pooh: after covering Captain Coleburn’s      discovery of Winnie in Finding Winnie, Mattick turns to the pair’s travels across the Atlantic to       London during World War I.

Karyn Miller-Medzon, producer for WBUR’s Here & Now, will moderate this event.
