Greetings from the Crime Wave

This weekend, Kathy, Kate, Lea, Al, and Barb, along with alums Paul Doiron and Gerry Boyle are at the Glickman Library at USM for a day of panels, classes, and schmoozing.

We kicked off last night with Kate, Paul, and Brenda Buchanan and many writers reading a two minute segment of their work. True crime poetry, anyone? A man handcuffed to an anchor? Maine’s premier deathbed artist? There was grace under pressure and a gong and a lot of laughter as we celebrated the courage and talent of a roomfull of writers.

More to come as we enjoy a day with Gayle Lynds, Chris Holm, agent Ann Colette, and others. Will report in during the day (if wifi allows) with highlights.
