Wayfinder Schools will welcome Anthony Doerr, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “All The Light We Cannot See,” to the Maine Irish Heritage Center Thursday night, May 25. Doerr will be joined by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Richard Russo, author of “Everybody’s Fool” and former Midcoast resisdent, for a reading and lively conversation about all things writing.

A reception with the authors will start at 6 p.m. and will be followed by the reading and  conversation at 7 p.m. The event benefits Wayfinder Schools, which includes the Community School in Camden.

General admission tickets to the reading are $40; tickets for both the reading and reception are $100. All proceeds will benefit Wayfinder Schools, an alternative high school for at-risk youth and teen parents in Maine. Tickets and more information are available at wayfinderschools.org.
