Maine Authors for Lewiston book sale and signing in Belfast, Dec. 2
BELFAST — Maine Authors for Lewiston, an informal group of more than 70 Maine authors, have banded together to support the victims of the recent tragedy in Lewiston. The group has organized a series of 10 book signings, all free and open to the public, so that people can purchase books and meet the authors.
The Belfast Free Library, 106 High Street, Belfast, will host the group on Saturday, Dec. 2, from 10 a.m. - noon. There will be fiction writers, children’s book authors, non-fiction writers, and poets among the participants.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for Maine book-lovers to support local authors, but, most importantly, to help our fellow Mainers as they begin to heal and recover,” said the Library, in a news release.
All of the participating authors have agreed to donate all, or most, of their proceeds from this event to help the healing and recovery efforts in Lewiston. All are volunteering because they care.
The authors scheduled to appear are: Danielle Bannister, Kelly Brooks-Bay, Irene Drago, David Florig, Robert Klose, Andrea Lani, Gregory Newton Brown, Michael Norton, Lucky Platt, Bruce Pratt, Ed Rice, Deb Shepherd, Skip Simonds, Jeffrey Thomson, Jason Trask, and Tom Wells.
