Portsmouth, New Hampshire, February 7, 2012:  On Friday, May 18, the international #1 bestselling author Dan Brown returns to The Music Hall to talk about writing, movie making, science, religion, and more in the first ever benefit for Writers on a New England Stage.  Proceeds from the evening will help The Music Hall and New Hampshire Public Radio continue to present today’s top writers – ranging from Ann Patchett to Chris Matthews, Jodi Picoult to the late John Updike, Elizabeth Gilbert to Stephen King – to Music Hall audiences and NHPR listeners.

"As a big fan of both The Music Hall and New Hampshire Public Radio, I'm honored to help celebrate two organizations of such great local importance," said Dan Brown.

“Dan Brown was one of the first authors we presented in Writers on a New England Stage,  back in our first season in 2006, and we are delighted he’ll take the stage again in this special Benefit.  It is fitting that one of the Seacoast’s very own should recognize the great value of this celebrated writers series – to the community, to literacy across New England, and to the ‘life of the mind,’ said Patricia Lynch, Executive Director of The Music Hall and Executive Producer of its signature writers series, Writers on a New England Stage and Writers in the Loft.  “Dan’s first event here gained the attention of international audiences, and, deservedly so, as he writes some of today’s most provocative and fascinating books. It’s going to be a remarkable evening,” she added.
