Columbus, Ohio — Thurber House will feature award-winning author Hilma Wolitzer as part of its Evenings with Authors series at 7:30 p.m. on Tues., March 21, at the Columbus School for Girls, 56 S. Columbia Ave.

Wolitzer is the author of six previous novels including the bestsellers Hearts and Tunnel of Love. She will be read from her latest work, The Doctor’s Daughter. This much-anticipated novel is a beautifully crafted tale about a woman coming to grips with the hidden truths of her life. A book signing will follow the reading. Wolitzer has won a Barnes & Noble Writer for Writers award and an Award in Literature from the Academy of Arts and Letters and has taught at the University of Iowa, New York University, and Columbia University.

Tickets are $15 purchased ahead, $18 at the door, with discounts for students and seniors. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 614-464-1032 or go to
