A torrential downpour did not deter book lovers, actors and friends coming out to support Megan Choritz when she launched her debut novel, Lost Property, at the Book Lounge on Wednesday June 7. The Woodstock performer, theatre director and playwright of numerous plays and musicals has spent all her life involved in making things up. She started writing the book during Covid. In 2020, her rhyming children’s book, The Big Bird Battle, was published. Her plays, The Tent, Clouds Like Waves, and Drive With Me, have all achieved critical acclaim.
