Voice actor Alan Sklar will give a live reading of Lawrence Block’s story, Hilliard’s Ceremony, at the Ridgefield Library on Thursday, July 13, at 7 p.m.

Alan Hilliard is an American foreign service officer in Togo, West Africa. He has a good life but feels something is missing so he speaks with an American friend who suggests he meet a wise African witch doctor. Hilliard does so — with surprising results.

Sklar has been a freelance voice actor for more than 20 years, voicing radio and TV commercials, narrating more than 200 audiobooks and working on numerous video projects.
