Come Fill Yourself With Story   

Maine author Mary Lou Bagley – seasoned actress and teacher – is known for her engaging reading style. With an ear for dialogue, strong characterizations, and exquisite details, her novel, “Other Wise,” delivered a story worth savoring that leaves readers wanting more. Now book two, “This Other Way of Knowing,” continues the series. “Other Wise” introduces 62-year-old Margaret Meader – a native Mainer and an outsider. Though not “from away,” many in her community deem Margaret an oddity – an other. Plain spoken and direct, she is gifted with second sight. As Margaret supports friends and neighbors, some old business is coming back around, setting the stage for confrontations rooted in tragedies of the past. Margaret’s story continues in “This Other Way of Knowing.” This one-session reading and discussion of the writing process uses both novels as springboards for a lively Q&A. Participants will be encouraged not only to fill up on story during the program but also to bring their own stories to the page. They will leave ready to apply Bagley's (borrowed) writing rule number one: put the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair and begin. “Other Wise” is not required reading, but is available for purchase (ISBN# 978-1718065208).
