Nathaniel Philbrick

Friends to Host Author Nathaniel Philbrick

Lane Library, in partnership with Barnes and Noble Bookstores, will be sponsoring author Nathaniel Philbrick for a reading and signing of his book Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community and War.

This event will take place at Winnacunnet High School on the evening of May 15th at 7:00 PM. Admission is free.

Philbrick will do a reading from the Mayflower, which is a new history focused on the founding of the Plymouth colony, followed by the book signing. Philbrick is a respected author of many titles regarding maritime history including Away Off Shore, Sea of Glory, and In the Heart of the Sea, for which he won the National Book Award for non-fiction.

Friends of the Lane Memorial Library have agreed to help host this special evening by aiding with promotion, offering a bake sale at the reading, and assisting with book signing. Barnes and Noble’s Community Relations Manager, Sally Stoklosa, has committed a 20% share of all vouchered book sales sold that night to the Friends organization. So, not only is May 15th a great opportunity to meet this acclaimed author, but potentially a wonderful fundraiser for the Friends! Get your vouchers for the book at the Lane Memorial Library's main desk.
