$0.00 Members

Join us for a writerly night in which attendees are encouraged to independently write 500 words in the first hour and then join us for a book release celebration for John Cotter's Losing Music. This event is free for current Lighthouse members, and guests are welcome to join for a $5 fee.

4:30–5:30 PM:  Come together and write
5:30–6:30 PM:  John Cotter's reading and conversation with Mike Henry

John Cotter is the author of the memoir Losing Music, forthcoming from Milkweed Editions, as well as the novel Under the Small Lights. His essays and stories have appeared, or will soon, in Guernica, Epoch, Raritan, Commonweal, New England Review, Georgia Review, and Joyland. He's been an Artist in Residence at SPACE Gallery in Portland, Maine, and a resident fellow at the James Merrill House in Stonighton, Connecticut. He was presented with the Lighthouse Writers' Beacon Award for Teaching Excellence in 2018.

A devastating memoir that sheds urgent, bracingly honest light on both the taboos surrounding disability and the limits of medical science, Losing Music is refreshingly vulnerable and singularly illuminating—a story that will make readers see their own lives anew.
