VIRTUAL PROGRAM: Author Nancy Thayer
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

We love Nancy Thayer and are so glad to spend some time with her online! 

Nancy will be joining us via Zoom to discuss her latest novel, GIRLS OF SUMMER (available for purchase 5/26).

In GIRLS OF SUMMER:

One life-changing summer on Nantucket brings about exhilarating revelations for a single mother and her two grown children in this sensational novel from New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer.

Lisa Hawley is perfectly satisfied living on her own. Having fully recovered from a brutal divorce nearly two decades earlier, she has successfully raised her kids, Juliet and Theo, seeing them off to college and beyond. As the owner of a popular boutique on Nantucket, she's built a fulfilling life for herself on the island where she grew up. With her beloved house in desperate need of repair, Lisa calls on Mack Whitney, a friendly--and very handsome--local contractor and fellow single parent, to do the work. The two begin to grow close, and Lisa is stunned to realize that she might be willing to open up again after all . . . despite the fact that Mack is ten years her junior.  Lisa's children worry about the potential for their mother to suffer another broken heart, all while finding complicated potential romances of their own.  As the season unfolds, a storm threatens to shatter the peace of the golden island, forcing Lisa, Juliet, and Theo to decide whether their summer romances are destined for something more profound. Nancy Thayer dazzles again in this delightful tale of family, a reminder that sometimes, finding our way back home can bring us unexpected gifts.

The Summer Teen Writer’s Workshop is a weekly online writing group for incoming 7th-12th graders.  Meetings will consist of opportunities for participants to write using guided prompts, or share their work for feedback. Regardless of your experience with writing, every level of writer is welcome and together we will work to foster a safe, supportive, and fun community for us to learn from one another.

Participants will be asked to create a free Zoom and Google Account if they do not have them already. We will be using the following online tools: Zoom, Gmail, Google...Drive, Docs, Forms, Slides, and Sites. Dakota will provide detailed instructions and support to help anyone who is unfamiliar with these tools.

 

This group will be run by college graduate & MA certified high school English teacher, Dakota Durbin. Dakota graduated from Merrimack College in 2018 with his BA English and is expected to graduate from Salem State University in December 2020 with his MAT English degree. During his time in undergrad, Dakota helped run Merrimack’s Writer’s Circle and participated in events which hosted critically acclaimed authors, poets, and artists. Dakota has been writing poetry for many years, and has continued to hone his craft. His work has been accepted in Laurel Moon Literary Magazine and he read at Boston College’s 2018 Greater Boston Intercollegiate Undergraduate Poetry Festival.
