The Friends of the South End Library are resuming their author's series, The South End Writes, with a reading tomorrow night by author Lily King from her most recent novel, Father of the Rain. Lily King, not a South End resident but with many friends in the neighborhood, grew up in Manchester, MA, and has taught English and Creative Writing at universities here and abroad. Her first novel, The Pleasing Hour, won the Barnes and Noble Discover Award and was a NY Times Notable Book. Her second, The English Teacher, won the Maine Fiction AwardWater Obstacle. Copies of King's novels are available at the SE branch, thanks to head librarian, Anne Smart. The reading starts at 6:30 PM at the South End Library. Refreshments will be available.
