The Ann B. McGowan Maine Writers Series and the Pittsfield Public Library are proud to present at evening with local Newport author Anne Britting Oleson. Anne has written novels, poetry and much more. Her most recent works include the Aventurine Morrow thrillers, Aventurine on the Bailgate and Aventurine and the Reckoning. You can find most of her works here at the library.
Come listen to Anne share readings from her works, including the third title in her Aventurine series!
In her own words, “I read. I write. I listen and I usually sing along. I teach. I travel. I ride my bike. I hike. I climb mountains. I play trumpet reasonably well, piano less well, and ukulele the worst of all. I keep scorebooks at baseball games, softball games, basketball games, whatever. I dig weeds out of my garden. I fix my house. I cook. My kids find me amusing and annoying by turn, but they always know where to find me. I laugh a lot, because a lot of things are funny…
I’ve published poems, short stories, book reviews, essays and photographs, as well as two poetry chapbooks, The Church of Saint Materiana and The Beauty of It (which is all about the things I’m in love with–which is damned near everything). I’m a member of Simply Not Done, a women’s reading, writing and teaching collaborative. With them and by myself, I’ve done a bunch of public readings in New England and in New York City.”
