Ne xt week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Al Lamanda (Monday), Dorothy Cannell (Tuesday), Lea Wait (Wednesday), and Barb Ross (Friday) and next weekend we’ll have a special post from our cyber expert, Jayne Hitchcock on what to watch out for during the holiday shopping season.
In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
Lea Wait: This weekend I’ll be signing at Studio 53, (53 Townsend Avenue in Boothbay Harbor, Maine) a wonderful 3-story gallery full of locally-made crafts, jewelry, paintings — and books! I’ll be there Saturday the 22 from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. (Early Bird Sale in town!) and Sunday from 1 until 2 p.m. Then, next Friday, I’ll be at another wonderful place with Christmas ideas — the Nobleboro Antiques Exchange, route 1 in Nobleboro, Maine, where antiques are displayed, and “repurposing” is the key. Two great places for one-of-a-kind gifts!
And I’ll really thrilled that the towns of Rumford, Mexico, Dixfield, Byron, Hanover, Roxbury, Carthage and Canton (yes, they’re all in Maine!) have chosen UNCERTAIN GLORY as a community read for this spring as part of their project “Local & Legendary: Maine in the Civil War.” I look forward to visiting with those folks next spring.
Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson: No news from me, but I’m chiming in to comment on Lea’s community read. Those towns are by way of being neighbors. In fact, I can see the Wilton/Carthage town line from my house. By the time of Lea’s visit, the new windmills up on the ridge will probably be operational.
