Author Talk Series

Author Talk, our local author series, features a wide range of local writers discussing their latest work. Visiting authors read selections from their books, talk about their creative process, and allow time for questions and answers.   Following the talk, books may be purchased at a reception and book signing. Unless otherwise noted, this monthly event is scheduled for the second Saturday of the month at 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room of the Main Library at 482 Broadway, South Portland, Maine. Author Talk is sponsored by the Friends of the South Portland Public Library.
