Title: An Evening with Lily King
Contact: , 207-236-3642
Location: Rockport Opera House
The Rockport Library Foundation and the Rockport Public Library will present an author talk and book signing with bestselling author, Lily King, on Friday, September 30; 6:30 pm at the Rockport Opera House. Admission is free and registration in advance is recommended.
“A master psychological portraitist” who is “firmly in the top rank of our most accomplished novelists”, Lily King brings her deft and graceful characterization to stories that illuminate the inner workings of life’s most complicated relationships.
With Writers & Lovers and Euphoria, her books catapulted onto bestseller and best-of-the-year lists across the country and established her as one of the most “brilliant” (New York Times Book Review) and “wildly talented” authors in contemporary fiction.
An Evening with Lily King is sponsored by the Rockport Library Foundation and made possible by the generosity of the many Foundation donors who participated in last year’s programming campaign.
Having successfully raised the necessary funds to support the building of the library, the Foundation has now turned its attention to providing programming and activities beyond what the library would be able to provide on its own. Lily King is the second speaker in a planned series, bringing interesting and insightful speakers to the Rockport community.
Barnswallow Books of Rockport will be on hand with Lily King’s books to sell for the book signing.
