Eat, Drink and Be Literary: Gala Fundraiser For The Hotchkiss Library of Sharon

Rachel Louchen reports from Sharon. The sixth annual “Eat, Drink and Be Literary” gala fundraiser and auction was held Saturday night at the handsome Lion Rock Farm (home to Trade Secrets), and attracted dozens of longtime library supporters, all of whom noted the important work the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon does for the community. The crowd gathered to support the library (which is open to the public but mostly privately funded), as well as for the chance to bid on some one-of-a-kind items such as a first edition copy of J.D. Salinger’s Franny and Zooey, or a stay in a charming country cottage in West Cork, Ireland. At left, committee member Tom Trowbridge with event co-chair, Barclay Collins.
