Virtual talk with author Karen Osborn
7 p.m. Thursday. Via Zoom (please preregister). printbookstore.com
Print: A Bookstore presents a virtual evening with writer Karen Osborn, who will be discussing her latest novel “The Music Book” with Shannon Krosgrud on Zoom. “The Music Book” is set in 1953, a time in history when orchestral groups didn’t allow women to even audition. A modern music quartet is in a pinch and decides to bring in cellist Irena, and “The Music Book” centers on her recounting her relationship with the composer who left her a sonata in his will. Ultimately, it’s a tale about the power of music.

‘Take Me Back to the Ball Game’
Anytime. Biddeford City Theater Annex, 205 Main St., Biddeford. On Facebook.
Biddeford Mills Museum remains closed, but should get a Gold Glove for its idea to use some window space down the block at Biddeford City Theater. Take a four-pitch walk down memory lane and go view the “Take Me Back to the Ball Game” exhibit. You’ll see several crackerjack trophies, team photos, balls and other memorabilia from decades of local Little League and softball games that will leave you happy you were caught looking.
