Joyce Maynard at the Phenix Theatre

Joyce Maynard joins us at the Phenix Theatre (38 N. Main St.) in a rare New Hampshire event, to present her new novel, Count the Ways.

This is a ticketed event. Phenix Hall doors will open at 6 PM, with a performance by the Cold River Ranters. It's a party, so BYOB! Joyce Maynard will read from Count the Ways, take questions from the audience, and sign books. Tickets with the new book included will also include a special Count the Ways-related item, hand-crafted by the author! We will have lots of copies of Joyce's new book and her older titles on hand for purchase as well.

Tickets available here.

  • No fancy dress code, but remember it is a party, and it is in an older building in the summer - so cool party attire recommended
  • Masks required if unvaccinated, masks optional if vaccinated
  • Have your ticket (printed or digital) ready at the door!)
