As part of the Concord Festival of Authors, The Umbrella is pleased to host a reading, book-signing and writing workshop with Aimee Nezhukumatathil, the New York Times-bestselling poet and author of World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, & Other Astonishments (Barnes and Noble’s Book of the Year).
Free and open to the public with RSVP, the book reading and signing will be held in The Umbrella Arts Center’s Main Stage Theater144 on October 18 at 7PM.
In anticipation of the visit, The Umbrella is also pleased to invite the public to participate in two virtual book club discussions (7-8:30PM via Zoom, September 28 and October 12) of World of Wonders, copies of which are available through the Concord Free Public Library and the Minuteman Library Network, Concord Book Shop, Milkweed Editions, and literary booksellers everywhere.
On October 19, Nezhukumatathil will also lead a one-day-only Writing Workshop through The Umbrella Arts Education program, in partnership with The Umbrella Arts & Environment program. Workshop capacity will be limited, so writers interested in participating should be sure to sign up for The Umbrella’s email list to receive early notice when registration opens in mid-September.
