Author Alexandra Slater, Friends with Boats

Come hear former Falmouth resident Alexandra Slater discuss her popular new beach read, Friends with Boats, on Friday afternoon, September 15th, at 2 p.m. at the Falmouth Public Library! She will read from her book and take questions from the audience. The book will be available to buy from Eight Cousins Books. Registration is requested, as space is limited; please go to or call the reference department at 508-457-2555 x 7.

The book is set in Falmouth and concerns three friends in their mid-40s, all of whom have become disillusioned with life in general. Things change with the arrival in town of an eligible bachelor! Soon all three women are vying for his attention, which naturally leads to humorous complications and a few reckonings. The book contains several references to places in Falmouth and nearby towns!

Ms. Slater grew up in Cleveland. Since her father was a research scientist and had a lab at MBL, the family summered in Woods Hole. As an adult, Ms. Slater moved to the Cape year-round after living in New York City.

While living in Falmouth Ms. Slater worked as a reporter at WCAI and as the education director at the Cotuit Center for the Arts. She is an award-winning journalist and writer. She graduated from Columbia University and attended Northwestern University’s Medill Graduate School of Journalism. Since then, she has been an actor, a comedian, a reporter, a creative writing teacher, and more! She splits her time between Boston and Cleveland now.
