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

On Saturday, February 8 at 1:30 p.m., MCW bloggers Dick Cass, Maureen Milliken and Brenda Buchanan will be Making A Mystery at the Waldoboro Public Library, 958 Main Street, Waldoboro. This is an interactive event where the audience dreams up the characters and supplies the writers with a motive, a weapon and a setting for a story we write together.  The public is welcome.

On Monday, February 10 at 6:30 p.m. (reception) and 7:00 p.m. (performance), actors from Portland Stage Company will bring to life characters created by Maine crime writers Gerry Boyle, Brenda Buchanan, Richard Cass, Paul Doiron and Julia Spencer-Fleming. This is the fourth annual staged reading of work by Maine crime writers and this year it’s a premiere night featuring new work by the authors. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
