Maria Semple Kicks Off Author! Author! on Friday
Don't miss Maria Semple, author of the best-selling novel Where'd You Go, Bernadette, when she joins us on Friday, 10/5, at Bend High, and leads a limited-seating writing workshop earlier in the day. Semple is the first author to visit as part of the 2018/2019 Author! Author! literary series. Tickets are available at the door and online at the Deschutes Public Library Foundation's website. The annual Author! Author! series is a fundraiser for the Foundation, which supports Library programs and services not funded through tax dollars. Thanks for your support!
