Maine Crime Writers and Libraries

In honor of Library week, here are some photos from various libraries we’ve visited over the years. It’s always a thrill to talk to readers, and where better to find them than in a local library?

Jen Blood, Kathy Emerson/Kaitlyn Dunnett, and Lea Wait at the New Gloucester library in 2016

Kate Flora, Kathy/Kaitlyn, Lea, and Julia Spencer-Fleming at Wells Library in 2006

    I get so jealous of all the in person author talks you post. Our local libraries very rarely host author events though we have many Ohio authors. There is a book fair gathering in Wooster held once a year at which .over a hundred authors are in attendance. It’s wonderful but so congested and definitely not the same as an author talk.

    We had a book store in Mansfield that regularly held well-attended author events but the owner closed it in order to sell the property for a hefty profit. The Wooster Book Company, an indy book store in Wooster, closed just before the pandemic because the owners retired. The only one left is a used book store also in Wooster.

    I follow Mainely Murders Bookstore. Thank you for the photo of Anne and Paula!
