“A wildly talented raft of authors” characterizes Maine, according to the promotional poster for this year’s Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance Holiday Book Sale. You’ll hear no argument from me.
Should we credit the long winters, scenic vistas, or infamous Yankee stubbornness for all the writers that populate the woods and coves of Maine? Perhaps all three.
Even those who weren’t born and raised here seem to receive gifts from the same muse as Maine’s native sons and daughters. So it’s only fitting that Maine’s 35 year old literary organization is teaming up with Portland Public Library and local independent Longfellow Books to offer a six-hour event chock full of authors and books.
One of Peaks Island’s own – James Hayman – will be there, signing “The Cutting” and “Chill of Night.” So all you island authors and book lovers, jump on the raft and we’ll head to the event together!
Friday, November 26th from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
