FARMINGTON – Acclaimed playwright Madeleine George will read from her new novel, “Looks,” at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, June 28, at Devaney Doak & Garrett Booksellers in the downtown.

“‘Looks’ is a captivating commentary on high school society, where social standing can change in an instant,” wrote reviewer Heather Doss for Publisher’s Weekly. “Told from the points of view of two teenage girls with more in common than anyone could believe, it is the emotional story of obese Meghan and anorexic Aimee’s determined friendship and retribution against a common enemy. Author Madeleline George uses her background as a playwright to incorporate expressive metaphors that bring the scenes to life.”

This will be George’s only Maine appearance.
