Weekend Update: November 21-22, 2015

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers there will be posts by Maureen Milliken (Monday), Jessie Crockett (Tuesday), Vaughn Hardacker (Wednesday), and Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Friday). Thursday, of course, is Thanksgiving, when we’ll have a “Ghost post” from the late country living writer, A. Carman Clark, about stuffing and what to do with that turkey carcass.

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

Lea Wait:  This weekend, Saturday from 7 a.m. (early bird sale!) until 4 pm, and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., my books and I will be joining other authors, craftsmen and artists at the Gifts for Giving holiday event at Studio 53, 53 Townsend Avenue in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

And make sure Thursday, December 3, is on your schedule if you live near Newton Highlands, Massachusetts … that’s Mystery Night at the New England Mobile Book Fair, and many of the Maine Crime Writers (plus mystery authors from all over New England) will be there from 6-8 pm celebrating the holidays – and mysteries! More details next week.

And Kate Flora says, since we’re about ALL THINGS MAINE, pick up a copy of the Kenneth Roberts cookbook, Good Maine Food, (as I just did since someone at a party suggested it) and read a bit. Great excerpts from the book and recipes to cook raccoon and woodchuck and those delicious porcupine livers, in case you’ve been wondering what to do with wildlife besides watch it.

And — a HAPPY THANKSGIVING from our families to yours!
