Weekend Update: November 12-13, 2016

fallsbooks1Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Kaitlyn Dunnett/Kathy Lynn Emerson (Monday) Lea Wait (Tuesday), Brenda Buchanan (Wednesday), Jen Blood (Thursday), and Jessie Crockett (Friday).

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

Many of the Maine Crime Writers are at New England Crime Bake from Friday through Sunday. With any luck, pictures will be added during the weekend.

From November 17-20, Lea Wait will be at Studio 53, 53 Townsend Avenue in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, as part of “Gifts for Giving,” a celebration of locally created art, crafts, jewelry … and, yes, books. She’ll be there from 11-4 on Thursday the 17th, from 11 until 8 on Friday the 18th (opening reception from 5 until 8!), from 7 a.m. (yes, it’s Early Bird Sale time in Boothbay Harbor. Shop in your PJ’s!) until 8 p.m., and Sunday, November 20, from 11 until 5.

Last Sunday afternoon, a bunch (a gaggle? a gang? a clutch?) of Maine Crime Writers gathered at Bull Feeney’s Pub in Portland for Noir @ The Bar, where each did a three minute reading from published or yet-to-be published work.  It was the inaugural Maine N@TB, and we were blessed will a full house of engaged listeners. Here’s a photo of the dozen who participated.

Watch for another Noir @ The Bar sometime in late winter, when we once again will need an afternoon of fellowship and laughs.
