Westchester Public Library will host New York Times bestselling author and Indiana native, Edward Kelsey Moore, author of “The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat.”

Moore will be at the Baugher Center (formerly the Library Service Center) on Sunday, December 4, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. to discuss his debut novel and sign copies of his book brought to the event. The Baugher Center is located at 100 W. Indiana Ave., Chesterton.

Moore's visit is part of WPL’s Indiana Bicentennial celebration and made possible by the Indiana Humanities "Novel Conversations" program through a grant from the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award program of the Indianapolis Public Library Foundation, and funded through The Glick Fund.

In this book, Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat Diner in Plainview, Indiana, is a home away from home for Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean. Dubbed "The Supremes" by high school pals in the tumultuous 1960s, they’ve weathered life’s storms for over four decades and counseled one another through marriage and children, happiness and the blues.

With wit, style and sublime talent, Edward Kelsey Moore brings together three devoted allies in a warmhearted novel that celebrates female friendship and second chances. Moore’s novel, has won numerous awards including a First Novelist Award from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association.

It was the book selected for adult readers by Books to Bridge the Region, a cultural and literary program initiative which (along with the Northwest Indiana Literacy Coalition) provided copies of the novel to high schools, universities and public libraries in seven counties of northwestern Indiana. Moore's book has also been optioned for film in association with Fox Searchlight Pictures.

Moore received a Bachelor of Music degree from Indiana University and a Master of Music degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.

He currently lives and writes in Chicago. In addition to writing, he is also a professional cellist.
