Sharon's Jim Rooney is a musician, songwriter, chronicler, and Grammy-winning producer of Iris Dement, John Prine, Nanci Griffith, Bonnie Raitt and many more; he is the author of In It for the Long Run: A Musical Odyssey (2014).

While there is no charge for admission, donations will be welcomed at the door, to benefit the new books fund of the Morrill Memorial and Harris Library.

The Norwich Bookstore will sell current and past books by the authors. (Many of the books can be purchased at the bookstore in advance, and can be signed by the authors in August.)
