TROY — Elizabeth Berg’s two favorite books from the 26 she has written are the first one and the latest one.
The award-winning author has published about one book a year for the past 25 years, many of them ranking on the New York Times’ best-seller list.
“Durable Goods,” the first novel she published after writing for magazines — including Parents Magazine for 10 years after she left a nursing career — had been her favorite until she finished her latest one, “The Story of Arthur Truluv.”
Berg will share how she became a writer and what it takes to be a writer at the Troy Community Center at 7 p.m. May 23. She said she will also talk about libraries and librarians, and how important they are.
