LOCATION First Parish Church (Portland)
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. All proceeds from Writerly Friendships will support the current renovation effort at PPL’s Burbank Branch. PPL is engaged in a $110,000 campaign to complete the funding needed to renovate this popular branch, which itself is the sixth busiest circulating library in the state.
