Each summer, the Thurber House lawn plays host to a series of outdoor literary picnics and readings with authors who have an Ohio connection. Join us for this long-running tradition of good friends, good food, and great books!
We invite readers of all ages to enjoy this literary picnic with Andra Gillum. Andra is a local author raised in Dublin, Ohio, who now lives in Upper Arlington with her family. Andra is the author of the children’s books Doggy Drama, Puppy Drama, Old Doggy Drama, and Lost Doggy Drama (coming soon). Her books are based on the adventures of her real dogs, Riley and Lucy. Andra does frequent author visits, and teaches writing workshops at schools, libraries, and Thurber House.
Picnicking begins at 5:30 pm. Our Young Docents will offer free guided tours of Thurber House. The program begins at 6:45 pm. Thurber House remains open after the reading for touring, book buying, and signing.
Menu: Corned beef sandwich, coleslaw, chips, and a brownie.
