Waldoboro Public Library will host a book talk with Elizabeth Flanagan (pictured) on Wednesday, November 14, at 6:30 p.m. Last year, the Medomak Valley High School student was accepted into The Young Emerging Authors Fellowship at The Telling Room, a writing center in Portland dedicated to youth voices. Along with three other high school students she was challenged to write, edit, and publish her first novel in only one academic year. Flanagan and her father traveled to Portland from Waldoboro once a week for her entire junior year. The result was the publication of her novel, “The Secrets They Left Behind.” Her talk will include a reading with a Q&A to follow. Copies of the book will be available to purchase.
