‘Appointment With Unreality’ Book Launch

The Plains School
1 Plains Ave.
Portsmouth, NH
United States

Artists’ Collaborative Theatre invites you to join us for the book launch of Appointment With Unreality, the stunning debut novel by Maine writer Allegra May on Feb 9 and Feb 16 at the Plains Schoolhouse in Portsmouth, NH.

Written under the pen-name Penelope May, Appointment With Reality weaves together adventure,neuroscience, space, faith, mystery, humor, and deep friendship. The journey that Lee and her Kai Ken dog Rayna share moves the reader beyond the known world into the outer reaches of belief – to an affirmation of the abiding connection between all forms of life.

Lee, a retired mental health counselor, is hearing a voice in her head. An alien creature? Impossible.  A delusional episode? Unlikely. Solving this puzzle will take Lee beyond the reality she understands; it’s a good thing she has her brave and intelligent Kai dog with her.

Join ACT ONE for a lively gathering (with refreshments!) to meet Ms. May and hear selected excerpts from Appointment With Reality on Sun, Feb 9 or Sun, Feb 16 from 2:00-3:30 pm. Admission is free but seating is limited to just 35 guests, so please call 603.300.2986 to reserve the Sunday of your choice!  (There will also be news about ACT ONE’s exciting plans for Festival 2020!)

The Plains School is located at 1 Plains Road, near the softball field at the westerly end of Islington Street. [Directions and map at actonenh.org/plains-school]

Books will be on hand for purchase and signing by the author and are also available at RiverRun Bookstore, 32 Daniel Street in Portsmouth and on Amazon in softcover and ebook.
