Thank you to everyone who came out on October 26, a dark and rainy night, for Monica Wood’s talk and Q&A about The One-in-a-Million Boy. What a warm and engaging speaker! Monica told us that failure is the reason the book got set aside initially, and how that same failure resulted in the freeing decision to expand her writing to memoir (We Were the Kennedys) and playwriting (Papermaker). Thanks to the encouragement of her “forbearing” husband, Monica found that coming back to this book after those other writing experiences made all the difference, and resulted in the book we all enjoyed. At the end of the evening, she shared a very entertaining slideshow of covers from international editions of The One-in-a-Million Boy.
2017’s One Book One Valley program will culminate in our valley-wide event at Kennett High School on Thursday, October 26 at 7:00 pm at Kennett High School, Eagles Way, North Conway. Monica Wood, author of The One-in-a-Million Boy, will speak and answer your questions. Monica’s a warm and engaging speaker, don’t miss a chance to hear her talk about about her work. She has written a number of really good reads!
