About Writers on a New England Stage
The celebrated “sell out” writers series that has brought to the Historic Theater such literary greats as Stephen King, Jodi Picoult, Dan Brown, Ann Patchett, John Updike, Elizabeth Gilbert, David McCullough, and Chris Matthews. Presented by The Music Hall and New Hampshire Public Radio with Yankee magazine, each evening features an author presentation followed by an onstage interview with Virginia Prescott, host of New Hampshire Public Radio’s “Word of Mouth”. Live music is performed by the award-winning house band Dreadnaught. The series’ bestselling authors represent all forms of the literature – from novels to histories, investigative reporting to memoirs, literary criticism to graphic novels – and bring to light today’s most compelling stories, popular ideas, provocative thoughts, and keen perceptions.. Book groups throughout the region are invited; and, supporting literacy, The Music Hall’s outreach program selects small student groups to attend.
