BELFAST — Paul Doiron, author of the “Mike Bowditch” series of mysteries set in Maine, will be at Left Bank Books, Tuesday, July 2, at 3 p.m., to celebrate that day’s release of Almost Midnight, the 10th book in the series.
The event will be an informal “meet-and-greet,” giving Doiron’s many fans a chance to sit down and chat for a few moments with Bowditch’s creator.
Doiron began his series with the 2010 release of The Poacher’s Son, in which readers met Bowditch for the first time. His books have been translated into 10 languages and received numerous prestigious regional and national awards, including the Maine Literary Award (three times).
Earlier this year, Doiron received his second Edgar Award nomination for Rabid, an eShort that reveals some of the secret history of his breakout character Charley Stevens, who appears in the Mike Bowditch series.
Doiron was the editor-in-chief of Down East Magazine from 2005 to 2013 before stepping down to write full time. He is a native of Maine, graduated with a degree in English from Yale University, and holds an MFA in creative writing from Emerson College.
He is a former member of the Maine Arts Commission and a current member of the Maine Humanities Council. He is also a Registered Maine Guide specializing in fly-fishing.
The public is invited to this free event; no reservations are necessary.
Call (207-338-9009) or email (email@example.com) with any questions. Copies of all of Doiron’s books will be available for purchase.
Left Bank Books is located at 109 Church Street in downtown Belfast, across the street from the police station. Parking is available in front of the shop and in an adjacent public lot.
