WILTON, Conn. – As the song goes, “June is bustin’ out all over,” and Wilton Library is “bustin’ out” seven authors, introducing everything from beach reads to bestsellers.

Author schedule:

Saturday, June 4, from 4-5:30 p.m. – Author and journalist George Taber will discuss his book, “Judgment of Paris." This year marks the 40th anniversary of a Paris wine tasting in 1976, when a relatively unknown California upstart won in a blind taste test against French wines.

Tuesday, June 7 from 7-8:30 p.m. – Terry McMillan, a bestselling author of “Waiting to Exhale” and “How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” will discuss her new book, “I Almost Forgot About You," the story of a woman who shakes things up in her life to find greater meaning.

Tuesday, June 14 from 7-8:30 p.m. – First-time novelist Christine Reilly visits the library with her debut entry, “Sunday's on the Phone to Monday,” a family love story about the eccentric yet tight-knit Simone family, coping with tragedy during ’90s New York.

Thursday, June 16 from 7-8:30 p.m. – Drawing on her own family history, author Joy Callaway has written a debut novel, “The Fifth Avenue Artists Society,” following Virginia Loftin, the boldest of four artistic sisters living in genteel poverty in the Bronx in 1891.

Tuesday, June 28 from 7-8:30 p.m. – Mary Simses returns to Wilton Library with her new novel, “The Rules Of Love & Grammar.” After a series of missteps, wordsmith Grace Hammond returns to her parents’ home where she must decide what truly matters.
