Rona Brinlee invites Marietta to her “Independent Bookstore by the Sea,” and the ocean-loving author accepts with delight and hopefully sand in her shoes. Her talk about Leaving 1203 begins at 7. Get there early for casual conversation and stay late for more. Someone in the audience has known 1203 for over fifty years—see if you can spot her. Bring tales of home and favorite memories. Throw open the door and let that salty air accompany your entry! Rona has copies galore of Leaving 1203 and Marietta travels with her pen.
