In the news department, here’s what’s happening with some of us who blog regularly at Maine Crime Writers:
from Kathy/Kaitlyn: This isn’t writing news, or mystery news, but it sure does relate to Maine. Saturday is the Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race in Bangor, Maine. It’s a little hard to explain the appeal of watching canoes and kayaks tip over at Six Mile Falls, but this event is celebrating its fiftieth year and, for those Mainers who don’t make the trek to Bangor to watch in person, it’s broadcast live on channel 5, starting at 10 AM. I’ll try to find a video clip and put up a link later.
Murder by the Minute: On Sunday April 17th from 5-7 p.m., Maine crime writers Kate Flora, Brenda Buchanan, Maureen Milliken, Jen Blood, and Bruce Coffin will be at Bull Feeney’s Pub at 375 Fore Street in Portland, reading from our work. We’ll be joined by other Maine crime writers and hope you’ll come and join us and get a sneak peek at what we’re up to.
Here are a couple of photos from the launch event for A Good Man with a Dog, at the Pittsfield Library, Kate Flora, Roger Guay (holding a copy of his memoir), Bruce Coffin, and a clever yellow lab named Saba.
An invitation to readers of this blog: Do you have news relating to Maine, Crime, or Writing? We’d love to hear from you. Just comment below to share.
And a reminder: If your library, school, or organization is looking for a speaker, we are often available to talk about the writing process, research, where we get our ideas, and other mysteries of the business. Contact Kate Flora: mailto: firstname.lastname@example.org
