Please note: Book Club has been moved to the Historic Theater to allow for more social distancing.
A benefit for Music Hall members at our Contributor-level and above, Book Club meets on the second Monday of the month from 6-7:30pm. Evenings include time for socializing followed by a moderated discussion. This month’s title is Memorial Drive by Natasha Trethewey.
About the Book:
Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Natasha Trethewey explores this profound experience of pain, loss, and grief as an entry point into understanding the tragic course of her mother’s life and the way her own life has been shaped by a legacy of fierce love and resilience.

About Our Moderator
Dawn Heffron is a downtown Portsmouth resident and strong supporter of The Music Hall. Her background is in Special Education and teaching the hearing impaired. When asked about her favorite book, Dawn cited A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith as one of her all-time favorite novels “I love the main character, Francie; her resilience in the face of adversity, her honesty, and of course, her love of reading and books!” As for being the moderator of The Music Hall Book Club, “I couldn’t have chosen a more insightful, erudite group of people!” she says. “They enjoy reading as much as I do and they are forthright in sharing their contributions about the book selections, which makes for interesting and thought-provoking discussions.”
