‘The Corpse in the Compost’ by Midcoast resident A. Carmen Clark

Kate Flora to discuss publishing mother’s book during ‘Zoom with Vose’

Event has passed

Vose Library continues its "Zoom with Vose Wednesdays at 6 p.m." on November 11 with Maine author Kate Flora.

Join Flora as she shares her journey of editing and publishing her late mother's novel The Corpse in the Compost, by A. Carmen Clark, through a draft manuscript that had been started before her death in 2005 as a follow up to her first novel, The Maine Mulch Murder, An Amy Creighton Mystery.

Flora's challenge to find her mother's "voice" led her to make the changes she felt were necessary to finish this sequel, according to the Library, in a news release.

Her mother, A. Carmen Clark, is best known in the Midcoast as the Home & Garden editor for The Camden Herald in the 1980s where she held that position for over twenty years, according to Vose. Her column, “From the Orange Mailbox” received national praise, and selections from the column were later compiled into a published book of the same name. The book received several awards and an article she wrote for Self magazine in January 1998 won an award for the best magazine article in the nation.

Kate Flora is known as a Maine Crime and Mystery writer and has published nine books.
