ROSWELL, Ga. – Local author Claire Cook will be the guest speaker of the Atlanta Authors Speaker Series Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Roswell Library.

The 2 p.m. program is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.

Cook wrote her first novel in her minivan when she was 45. At 50, she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the adaptation of her second novel, "Must Love Dogs," starring Diane Lane and John Cusack. She is now the bestselling and award-winning author of nine novels, including "Wallflower in Bloom," with a 10th, "Time Flies," coming in June.

"Must Love Dogs" tells the story of life after divorce for Sarah Hurlihy, which consists of juggling her job as a preschool teacher and the demands of her large, interfering Irish-American family. Even Sarah knows she should put the past behind her and take a bold step toward a fresh start, but she's stuck. So her bossy big sister takes matters into her own hands and places this personal ad for her: "Voluptuous, sensuous, alluring and fun. Barely 40 DWF seeks special man to share starlit nights. Must love dogs."

Cook's other notable book is "Wallflower in Bloom," the story of one woman who's ready to take a leap into the spotlight, no matter where she lands.

The program will be held in the meeting room off the lobby of the Roswell Library, 115 Norcross Street. For more information, see the author's website www.clairecook.com, or visit the Roswell Friends of the Library online at www.forl.net or call 770-640-3075.
