What a great turnout! About 200 people attended the 2018 One Book One Valley finale on October 25. We raised $950 for the Mountain Rescue Service and Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue.
Thank you to Ty Gagne for a wonderful presentation, and to all of our readers from the valley and beyond.
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.
