Weekend Update: September 7-8, 2019

Next week at Maine Crime Writers, there will be posts by Brenda Buchanan (Monday), Darcy Scott (Tuesday), John Clark (Thursday) and Joe Souza (Friday).

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

On Tuesday, September 10th, Dick Cass will join two other crime writers for a Making a Mystery Program at the Curtis Library in Brunswick. Program starts at 7.

Mystery Making Workshop with Three Maine Authors

Curtis Library’s Mystery Author series kicks off with an exciting event:  In this interactive workshop, three mystery authors representing different sub-genres, including cozy/traditional and thriller/suspense, will brainstorm on their feet to create a brand new mystery using suggestions provided by the audience. Fun, fast-paced, and fascinating, this improv game offers important insights into mystery writers’ minds and the conventions of the genre. Authors participating:  Dick Cass, Connie Hambley and Edith Maxwell.

Join us for a fun-filled evening!

On Friday the 13th of September, MCWers Brenda Buchanan and Dick Cass and MCW alum Julia Spencer-Fleming will be reading and talking about their work at Quiet City Bookstore at 97 Lisbon Street in Lewiston at 6 p.m. The event is co-sponsored by Quiet City and the Lewiston Public Library. Join us for a thought-provoking evening sure to involve lots of laughs as well (and, we are told, cookies!) FMI: https://www.facebook.com/events/439607460098165/
