Novelist LINDSAY HATTON Reads “Monterey Bay”

July 14, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Porter Square Books welcomes LINDSAY HATTON with her first novel, Monterey Bay.

In 1940, fifteen year-old Margot Fiske arrives on the shores of Monterey Bay with her eccentric entrepreneur father. Margot has been her father’s apprentice all over the world, until an accident in Monterey’s tide pools drives them apart and plunges her head-first into the mayhem of John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row.

Alternating between past and present, Monterey Bay explores histories both imagined and actual to create an unforgettable portrait of an exceptional woman, a world-famous aquarium, and the beloved town her father and she both call home.

This event is not ticketed.

Monterey Bay is currently being sold at Porter Square Books.

If you cannot attend the event, you can still get a signed copy by purchasing the book online and mentioning in the comments section at checkout that you want it signed (or personalized).  This must be completed at least 24 hours prior to the event.
