LEWISTON — The Lewiston Public Library, 200 Lisbon St., will host several virtual events this month on its Facebook page, according to the library’s web page.

Virtual Camp NaNoWriMo 2020 will take place at 11 a.m. every Wednesday through April 29. Camp NaNoWriMo is a writing event that happens in April and July. It is different from NaNoWriMo in November because participants can work on any type of creative project, not just a novel. First drafts or revision, scripts or stories or poems or essays — all are welcome.
