We are pleased to welcome award-winning author Ann Hood to the Truro Public Library on Tuesday, July 8, at 6:30 pm. A versatile writer who navigates between fiction and nonfiction with ease, Ms. Hood has written 11 novels and many short stories, as well as essays and memoir. Ms. Hood will explore the subject of writing, delving into each of her last three books. We will be treated to an intimate look at her creative process and at how her love of the written word flourished into a successful career. A Rhode Island native, Ms. Hood broke in to the literary scene in 1987 with “Somewhere off the Coast of Maine,” written in part while on furlough from her TWA flight attendant job. When laid off as a flight attendant during TWA’s crisis in the 1986, she began writing full-time, producing adult novels, numerous children’s books, two memoirs, a writers’ guide, a short story collection, and articles for national and international magazines and newspapers. Her best-selling books include “The Knitting Circle” (2007), “Comfort: A Journey Through Grief”(2008), “The Red Thread” (2010), and “The Obituary Writer” (2013).
