Almost two years ago, I sat down with Jacqueline Sheehan at fellow-author Eleanor Morse‘s house to discuss Jacqueline’s growing list of books, including Lost and Found a New York Times Bestseller that has been optioned for film by Katherine Heigl, star of Grey’s Anatomy. As her devoted readers already know, Jacqueline fancies Peaks Island (or fictionalized versions of it) as a setting for her novels; Picture This, her sequel to Lost and Found, also takes place here.

It’s the launch of this new book that brings Jacqueline back to Maine for an event at the award-winning indie favorite Longfellow Books. Fortunately for us, she will offer a free writing workshop during her visit to the island. Here are the details:

“Creating Memorable Characters” Writing Workshop

Wednesday, June 6th 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Peaks Island Community Room

During the first hour, Jacqueline will lecture and answer questions. The second hour will entail writing exercises. Those interested in participating should contact the Peaks Island branch of the Portland Library at either 766-5540 or email peaks@portland.lib.me.us
