The Associates of the Boston Public Library cordially invites you to our Hundred-Year Retroactive Book Award competition to weigh the enduring literary merits of three bestsellers published in 1917. Contenders for the prize are T.S. Eliot's Prufrock and Other Observations, Mohandas Gandhi's Third Class in Indian Railways, and Arthur Conan Doyle’s His Last Bow: An Epilogue of Sherlock Holmes. The books will be defended by poet and author Charles Coe, Michael Patrick MacDonald, memoirist, and suspense author Jacquelyn Mitchard respectively. Author Stona Fitch will moderate the irreverent debate, after which the audience will vote to determine the winner. A reception with the panelists will follow. The event will be held at the Boston Public Library, Copley Square, in the Abbey Room.
