DATE Thursday, June 30

TIME 7 PM

 

Join the Portland Public Library for “Writerly Friendships” a special evening with authors Lily King (Euphoria), Christina Baker Kline (Orphan Train), and Monica Wood (We Were The Kennedys, One In A Million Boy). The authors will discuss the unique nature of the Maine writing community and the ways in which it fosters creative connections. There will be a short Q & A session in which they will take questions from the audience. A book signing will follow the event and copies of their most recent works will be available for sale.

 

Tickets are $20 in advance, $30 at the door. They may be purchased at writerlyfriendships.brownpapertickets.com; a limited number of physical tickets may be purchased at the Maine Library or at PPL’s Riverton Branch.
