“This luminous memoir is a gift to any reader searching for meaning, clarity, and perhaps a bit of hard-won joy. Katrina Kenison is the best kind of guide through our life’s passages: a thoughtful, fearless friend who reaches out a hand and says, I’ve been here too.” – Dani Shapiro, author of Devotion

The gathering begins at 5:30pm, author talk/Q&A at 6:30. Drinks and snacks available throughout the evening.

Guest moderator: Dr. Patricia Gianotti



The author of Mitten Strings for God and The Gift of an Ordinary Day, inspires us with her latest book of reflections about beginning a new life without children at home—one of life’s great transitions, affecting a home, a life, a marriage. An inspiring, beautiful book for the massive group of women whose children have grown up, but who themselves don’t want to stop growing.

About Innovation and Leadership Forums

In this Age of Participation, The Music Hall expands on the lively and informative conversations around issues that are part of its celebrated Film Matters Series with a new program Innovation and Leadership Forums. The new program sprang from the creation of Digital Portsmouth, the popular Music Hall gathering that brings together the best and the brightest of the Seacoast’s e-coast on a quarterly basis with presentations on the art of all things digital combined with social networking.  Other Forums feature local and regional leaders talking about sustainability, innovation, mindfulness, and leadership in the casual chic setting of the Music Hall Loft. Larger events with national and international thought-leaders and authors will be hosted in the Historic Theater. The Music Hall is committed to community building and personal flourishing and Innovation and Leadership Forums are part of that commitment.

About Writers in the Loft

Akin to The Music Hall’s anchor author series, Writers on a New England Stage, Writers in the Loft features well-known authors but in a smaller, more intimate space. The series brings audiences today’s top authors, the best of fiction and nonfiction. The evening package includes a reserved seat and bar beverage, author presentation and Q+A, a copy of the book, and a meet-and-greet book signing with the featured writer. Presenting Sponsor: Citizens Bank.
