In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Lea Wait: Saturday, June 21, I’m honored to have been invited to be one of the speakers at the unveiling/opening of Wiscasset’s Museum in the Streets. Wiscasset is the small Maine seaport where five are my books (Uncertain Glory, Stopping to Home, Seaward Born, Wintering Well, and Finest Kind) are set, and I’ll be briefly talking about it’s history, and why I chose that town to write about. The ceremony will be from 11:30-12:00 near the town pier, and then the crowd will reconvene at 12:15 to unveil the first placard at the old Custom House, across Water Street, and a reception to follow will be on the pier. The Museum in the Streets will include two self-directed walking tours of the village, with directions, and signs in front of particularly historic or interesting locations. Buy a lobster roll at Red’s Eats and stroll one of the most scenic villages in Maine. You might even look for locations mentioned in my books …..!
Then, a little early notice: Saturday June 28 I’ll be discussing my Shadows on a Down East Summer at the Mainely Murder Bookstore on Bourne Street in Kennebunk, from 3:30-5:00.
