Weekend Update: June 13-14, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Jayne Hitchcock (Monday), Lea Wait (Tuesday), Barb Ross (Wednesday), Vaughn Hardacker (Thursday) and Dorothy Cannell (Friday).

In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:

Sunday, June 14, (also known at tomorrow if you read this on Saturday) at 2 p.m. Kate Flora, Dorothy Cannell and Lea Wait will be speaking at the Liberty Library (in Liberty, Maine) as part of the library’s “Death and Desserts” program.  Shall we guess chocolate may also be involved? Plus, books will be available for purchase and signing.

Monday morning, June 15, Lea Wait will be taking students from the Bristol Consolidated School on a tour of the old jail in Wiscasset, and then leading them on a tour of Wiscasset locations that appear in her books for young people, especially UNCERTAIN GLORY.

Friday, June 19th, Barb Ross, Kate Flora, and Brenda Buchanan will be at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick, Maine at 6:00 p.m.

Some photos for last week’s author adventures, including Maureen Milliken’s book launch at the amazing Press Hotel in Portland, and Kate Flora’s visit to the Jessup Library in Bar Harbor.

    I have written, and am directing, my 10th play, for PortFringe at the Studio theater at Portland Stage, June 21 (8pm) and june 25 (10pm), Waiting For God, the story of 4 unbaptized babies that died and went to Limbo, and are growing up there, when a visitor from over-packed Purgatory drops in and starts telling them about things they missed, like beer and sex….should be a hoot. Especially, if you happened to grow up Catholic, and remember the concept of Limbo…
