About Pages in the Pub

Organized by the Book Jam, Pages in the Pub is an evening designed for people to meet up to discuss books of all types—fiction, history, cookbooks, etc.—with members of the local literary community. During the event, attendees may enjoy a glass of wine, beer, or seltzer while listening to presenters as they recommend their favorite books. At the end of the presentation, participants will have the opportunity to order the titles discussed from Still North and to talk further with their fellow book lovers. Still North will donate 20% of purchases and a portion of ticket sales that evening to the Howe Library.

About the Presenters

Andy Borowitz was born in Shaker Heights, where he wrote made-up news for his high school newspaper. He moved to New York City in 2005, where he started writing made-up news for The New Yorker. His career demonstrates either a commitment to a genre or arrested development.

KJ Dell’Antonia is a novelist and former journalist and editor at the New York Times whose writing always inevitably ends up being about why the things we think will make us happy and solve our problems (Reality TV! Fame! Witchcraft! Genius athletic children!) never, ever do. She is possibly a witch and definitely has a book in her bag, and Shirley Jackson is her literary idol forevermore.

Peter Orner once ran for student council vice president under the slogan "Peter Orner Eats Salad." You see there was a new salad bar and the salad bar was popular, and so he thought...Anyway, he didn't prevail.

Sarah Stewart Taylor writes books and reads books and has way too many books. She is the author of the Maggie D'arcy mystery series, about an American police detective in Ireland, and also of a forthcoming series set in Vermont. Her new Maggie D'arcy mystery, A Stolen Child, will be out in June. She and her family raise sheep on their Hartland farm and she spends as much time in Ireland as she can. When she isn't reading, writing, or shepherding, you can find her moving her books around and coming up with excuses for her family about why she needs so many books. You can find her at
