Meet the Author: Kate Russo
Darien Library welcomes author Kate Russo to discuss her novel Super Host with Director Kiera Parrott. The book is a lovingly crafted meditation on loneliness and connection that acknowledges the courage it takes to start over at middle age. This virtual event will take place on Thursday, March 4 at 7 p.m. Register on Darien Library’s website at darienlibrary.org/event/4847.
Russo’s debut novel is an engaging, tender, and compulsively readable coming of middle-age story in which a quiet artist seeks to move beyond his safe and predictable life and fully open himself to love. With a light wit and razor-sharp insight, Super Host explores what it takes to reclaim one’s self and one’s dreams, and to begin a new life with purpose.
