Dear FOCL Supporter,

If you are like us, you were looking forward to settling into your assigned seat, perusing your program, and waiting with anticipation and then applause as the theater lights went down…

Those days of live author presentations will return…one day.

But for now, FOCL is excited to present Paula McLain’s talk on June 30th to our audience…virtually!

We are busy planning the details of this event that will offer the following:

  • You will experience Paula deliver a dynamic and thought-provoking presentation.
  • You will be able to submit questions that Paula will personally answer.*
  • You will have the opportunity to purchase signed books through our partner, River’s End Bookstore.
  • You will be entered in a drawing for a prize giveaway of a FOCL tote bag and autographed book sent directly to your home.
  • You will be instrumental in allowing FOCL to continue its mission to support the central and local libraries.

This will all happen from the ease of your living room! This option honors our commitment to this respected author series while keeping you, our audience, safe and comfortable.

We will reach out to you by email with specific instructions on how to exclusively view this online presentation within the coming weeks. You may also check for updates on the FOCL website and on our Facebook page.

(We are also planning to bring you Marlon James and Tayari Jones later in the summer–stay tuned for more details about those shows, coming soon!)

* Please email questions to be considered for Paula McLain’s Q&A to by May 27, 2020.
