WINTHROP — Owen King will speak at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Bailey Public Library.

The event is part of the ongoing Winthrop Lakes Region Forum and will take place in the Stephen and Tabitha King Event Room in the recently opened wing of the library. King will discuss and read from his much acclaimed debut novel “Double Feature,” which ‘USA Today’ called “exceptional” and “smartly written.”

King published a collection of short stories and novellas “We’re All in This Together” in 2005, which Kirkus described as “powerful … great storytelling.” His debut novel “Double Feature” is a coming-of-age story about a film-studies student, failed aspirations and family. His short stories have appeared in Book Magazine and the Bellingham Review among others.

A graduate of Bangor High School and Vassar College, King holds a master’s degree in Fine Arts from Columbia University. He has been nominated for a National Magazine Award, recognized in the acclaimed O. Henry Prize Stories series and is a recipient of the John Gardner Award for Short Fiction. He currently resides in Brooklyn.

The event is free and open to the public. Copies of “Double Feature” will be available for sale at the event.
