Summer resident Jason Porter will read from his new book Why Are You So Sad? on Wednesday, August 13, at 7:00 pm. His debut novel is a humorous and insightful exploration of the universal yet often illusive search for happiness, and has been compared to the work of Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk and David Sedaris. Jason is originally from Jackson, Michigan, and now lives in New York City. For more information about the author, go to thejasonporter.com.
This book discussion group meets at the library on the last Wednesday of each month at 10:15 am. Their lively discussions are open to the public.
