REGISTRATION UPDATE: Registration for the Lily King Book Launch at Mechanics’ Hall tomorrow night is now FULL. We may have some walk-in space at the door for people who arrive at 7pm, but we will not know for sure until that time. Please inquire at the door to the ballroom at 7pm, no earlier.
For Eventbrite registered guests: As we are expecting a full house, we are asking that registered guests arrive at 6:30 when the doors open to claim their seats. A limited amount of sitting and standing room may be available at the time of the event once registered guests are seated. Latecomers will not be guaranteed seating as this a free community event. Thank you for your understanding!
ORIGINAL TEXT: Join us in the Ballroom for Lily King’s Book Launch for Writers & Lovers! This program is co-presented with Print: A Bookstore and Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. FREE but registration through Eventbrite is highly recommended. All are welcome.
Following the breakout success of her critically acclaimed and award-winning novel Euphoria, Lily King returns with an unforgettable portrait of an artist as a young woman. Writers & Lovers follows Casey—a smart and achingly vulnerable protagonist—in the last days of a long youth, a time when every element of her life comes to a crisis. Written with King’s trademark humor, heart, and intelligence, Writers & Lovers is a transfixing novel that explores the terrifying and exhilarating leap between the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another.
MECHANICS’ HALL PRESENTS is a series of conversations, discussions, and readings rooted in the history of our founders, the Maine Charitable Mechanic Association. The association was dedicated to the diffusion of useful knowledge as a means to enlighten, support and educate its members. It was also designed to keep them “out of trouble”. Today, Mechanics’ Hall collaborates with organizations and individuals who share a passion for thoughtful discussion, critical thinking and creative impact. And we’re not opposed to a bit of trouble making.
(Tuesday) 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
