Hot Off The Press! Photos from Murder by the Book

Brenda Buchanan, here, with some on-the-scene photos from Jesup Library in beautiful Bar Harbor, where many of us who kill on the page converged this weekend to participate in the inaugural Murder by the Book conference.

The eye-catching entrance to the Jesup Library. In addition to the crime scene tape, there were chalked outlines of dead bodies on the sidewalk out front.

Many thanks to all of those who attended and to Ruth Eveland, Melinda Rice, Kayla Chagnon and the rest of the wonderful staff at the Jesup Library for a memorable weekend.  A lot of local businesses were behind this event as well, a model of community engagement.
