Eat, Drink and Be Literary: Hotchkiss Library Auction at the Sharon Country Club
The public library is the heart and soul of most towns in our region, and, volunteers are the backbone of the library. No one is more committed to the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon than the indomitable octogenarian trustee Dorothy Felske, who organized Sunday night’s “Eat, Drink and Be Literary” silent auction at the Sharon Country Club, where a snappy crowd bid on items like a week in San Miguel de Allende and dinner for eight with author Michael Korda at literary agent Lynn Nesbit’s beautiful home in Sharon.
Artist Peter Felske and antique textiles authority Titi Halle; ABC News chief investigative correspondent Brian Ross and his wife, Lucinda.
