In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Lea Wait: A busy week ahead! I’m looking forward to visiting Swan’s Island in Maine for the first time this week! On Tuesday, August 12, I’ll be speaking at the library there — twice. Once in the afternoon, at 2 o’clock, about Uncertain Glory (I’m bringing some Civil War artifacts with me,) and then at 7 in the evening I’ll be back to talk about my mysteries. Can hardly wait! Then, Friday night, I’ll be at the Stable Gallery in Damariscotta (5-7 p.m.) for an opening in which my husband Bob Thomas’ art is featured — and Saturday, the 16th, I’ll be speaking, again about Uncertain Glory, this time at Willowbrook Village, a reconstructed 19th century village in Newfield, Maine. You’ll find me there from 12:30 until 1:30.
Kaitlyn Dunnett: In the planning way ahead department, I’ve just been tapped for next year’s Wilton Blueberry Festival (this year’s festival was last weekend) because the theme is going to be “Reading and Writing” and local writers (very local, as in writers having a connection to Wilton, Maine) will be doing signings. Look for more about this just before the first weekend in August next year.
