Where’s Waldo?


Bruce Robert Coffin here, wishing you all a happy July.

One of the most interesting things about being a novelist are the invites we receive from various libraries. Just last week I was in Southport, Maine for the first time in my life. Such a beautiful place. I enjoyed lunch dockside at Oliver’s and a fried shrimp dinner at Robinson’s Wharf. The folks attending the event at the Southport Memorial Library were both welcoming and enthusiastic. I was also treated to great weather and a chance to unwind at the Cozy Harbor Bed and Breakfast, where I spent some time working on the next Detective Byron novel. Thank you Sandra!


Last night I spoke in Castine, Maine as a guest of Witherle Memorial Library. The event, which took place at the Unitarian Universalist Parish House just across the town green from the library, kicked-off their 2018 Maine Writers Series. While in Castine, I stayed at the Pentagoet Inn Bed and Breakfast. And like the rest of the town, I found the Pentagoet both welcoming and charming. If you haven’t had a chance to explore the coast of Maine, I highly recommend it.

Where am I headed next? I’m glad you asked. Here is a list of my upcoming July appearances.

July 10-14 I’ll be attending ThrillerFest at the Grand Hyatt in New York City.
July 17th I’ll be at the Tewksbury Public Library in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.
July 19th I’ll be at Quill Books and Beverage emceeing a trivia fundraising event.
July 24th I’ll be at the Casco Public Library in Casco, Maine.
July 26th I’ll be at the Flint Public Library in Middleton, Massachusetts.

Hope to see you at one of these venues.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to pack for New York. Write on!
