Vineyard Haven library fundraiser with Geraldine Brooks


Pulitzer prizewinning author Geraldine Brooks will discuss her latest novel, “Horse,” in an event to benefit the Vineyard Haven Public Library on Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 5 pm, outdoors at the Tashmoo Spring Waterworks building.

“Based on the remarkable true story of the record-breaking thoroughbred Lexington who became America’s greatest stud sire, ‘Horse’ is a gripping, multi-layered reckoning with the legacy of enslavement and racism in America,” a press release from the library says. Books will be available for purchase and signing following the talk.

This limited-capacity event is sponsored by the Vineyard Haven Library Building Fund, Inc.(VHPLBFI), a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization made up of community volunteers. VHPLBFI is undertaking a capital campaign to support the ongoing effort to enhance the library building with the addition of a multipurpose meeting room. To learn more, visit
