LOVELL — The Hobbs Library Speakers Series is honored to welcome award-winning writer Meredith Hall on Thursday, June 16 at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Hall’s 2007 memoir “Without a Map” was instantly recognized as a classic of the genre and became a New York Times bestseller. It was named a best book of the year by Kirkus and BookSense, and was an Elle magazine Reader’s Pick of the Year.

Publishers Weekly calls her first novel “Beneficence,” “Powerful … Hall’s meticulous prose convincingly captures the daily realities… of agricultural life and offers insight into the ways calamity fractures family bonds.”
