Nov03Michael PaternitiThursday, 7:00PM @ Mechanics Hall, 519 Congress St., Portland
We're excited to present an evening with founder and author Michael Paterniti, one of the most original and empathic storytellers working today. His writing has been described as “humane, devastating, and beautiful” by Elizabeth Gilbert, “spellbinding” by Anthony Doerr, and “expansive and joyful” by George Saunders. Presented as part of The Telling Room’s Super Famous Writers Series, this conversation, hosted by Kirkus Fiction Prize-winner and Telling Room board member, Lily King, will align with the organization’s annual theme for student writers: Encounters.
Tickets are $10 and are available to adults and students of all ages: http://
