Description

After careful consideration, the Provincetown Board of Library Trustees have chosen to present the third Rose Dorothea Award to author, journalist, filmmaker and part-time Outer Cape resident Sebastian Junger. The award reception is Friday, September 15th at 6:00 pm at the Provincetown Public Library, 356 Commercial Street, Provincetown. The event is free of charge but limited to 100 people as part of the 2017 Provincetown Book Festival. Light refreshments will be served.

Sebastian Junger is the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of The Perfect Storm, Fire, A Death in Belmont, War, and his newest book Tribe. He is also an award-winning journalist, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, and a special correspondent at ABC News. Junger has covered a variety of major news stories around the world and has received both a National Magazine Award and a Peabody Award. His 2010 feature-length documentary “Restrepo,” which chronicled the deployment of a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley, was nominated for an Academy Award and won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Rose Dorothea Award ceremony, while free, is a ticketed event.

Donations will be accepted and will go to the Library Fund, the Board of Library Trustee’s initiative to retire the library's debt service and provide additional funding to the Library. Additional event information, photos and interviews are available by contacting Brittany Taylor, Interim Library Director.

About the Rose Dorothea Award: Created by Chair Emeritus James Johnson, the Rose Dorothea Award pays tribute to nationally renowned writers who work here in Provincetown. Named after the historic S/V Rose Dorothea, the half model, which took ten years to complete, is located on the second level of our library. The award seeks to recognize excellence among writers with a unique connection to this small seaside community which is also America’s oldest continuous arts colony and the birthplace of modern theater.

About the Provincetown Board of Library Trustees: Board Members are Chair Laura Shabott, Vice Chair Steve Desroches, Stephen Borkowski and Joan Prugh.
