Area Author Affair: John Lambo-MELANIE
Monday, April 2, 6-7 pm
Melanie Safka (known by millions simply as Melanie) was the first woman to perform at The Woodstock Music Festival in the summer of 1969. Now, more than 40 years later, the first comprehensive Melanie biography is finally available. Melanie, The First Lady of Woodstock by John Lambo is filled with never before seen photos documenting Melanie’s life from childhood to present day. This ambitious biography finally recognizes Melanie for her immense talent and humanitarian spirit. A lifelong fan, local author John Lambo spent many hours in research here at Wilton Library. He was determined to respect her privacy, while documenting both the ups and downs of her career. Come prepared to guess where Melanie performed locally several years ago! Books will be available for purchase as well as signing by the author. Light refreshments are served at Area Author Affairs, held to celebrate our local authors. Registration encouraged.
