About the Series » Literary Lunch Series

Portland Public Library’s Literary Lunch series is held monthly and features authors from New England in conversation about new works.  Authors are interviewed by literary friends, colleagues or critics.

All Literary Lunches are free to the public. Because they take place over the lunch hour, guests are encouraged to bring their lunch; complimentary coffee is generously provided by Coffee By Design.
