Virtual chat with author Lily King

Thu, 07/30/2020 - 11:00am

On Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 10 a.m., Skidompha Library’s Chats with Champions program will host its first virtual chat. The  guest will be Lily King, the award-winning author of the novels “The Pleasing Hour,”  “The English Teacher,”  “Father of the Rain,”  and “Euphoria,” one of the New York Times Book Review’s 10 Best Books of 2014 and a finalist for the National Book Award.

King lives in Maine and has graciously offered to discuss her newest title “Writers & Lovers” with Skidompha Library Chat attendees. Written with King’s trademark humor, heart, and intelligence, “Writers & Lovers” is a wise and transfixing novel that explores the terrifying and exhilarating leap between the end of one phase of life and the beginning of another.

All those wishing to attend may visit Skidompha’s website to sign up (www.skidompha.org). Those attending will be emailed a link the Monday prior to the Virtual Chat. 

Chats with Champions is a free community offering from your national award-winning Skidompha Library at 184 Main Street, Damariscotta, Maine. This program is generously sponsored by Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shop.
