Coming this fall to Writers on a New England Stage

Writers on a New England Stage returns this fall with a new line up of world-class authors to read from their latest works and talk about their creative process, and their stories. Writers featured this year include Nina Totenberg, Huma Abedin, and John Irving. Writers on a New England Stage is a partnership of The Music Hall and New Hampshire Public Radio.

The series kicks off with Nina Totenberg on Wednesday, September 21 at 7pm to discuss her book, Dinners with Ruth. The conversation will be hosted by Hannah McCarthy, co-host of NHPR’s Civics 101. For more info and to purchase tickets click HERE.

Huma Abedin follows on Tuesday, September 27 at 7 PM to discuss her memoir Both/And.

In the New York Times bestselling memoir Both/And, first-time author Huma Abedin—Hillary Clinton’s top aide and advisor—offers “a gripping testament to the power of a woman finding her voice, owning her ambition, and sharing her truth” (Glennon Doyle). Hosted by Hannah McCarthy. For more info and to purchase tickets click HERE
