Maine Mystery Writers to be featured at Annual Benefit for Maine State Library

What happens when investigative reporter Jack Morrow, homicide cop Mike McCabe, and Maine Game Warden Mike Bowditch get together and hang out? Crazy things! If you’re a Friend of the Maine State Library, you’ll have a front row seat to hear just how these three crime solvers always seem to get the bad guy.

On November 14, First Lady Ann LePage will honor the Friends of the Maine State Library at the Blaine House with an afternoon tea and the chance to hear from three of Maine’s mystery crime writers, Gerry Boyle (author featuring character Jack Morrow), Paul Doiron (author featuring character Mike Bowditch), and James Hayman (author featuring character Mike McCabe), as they discuss their work, their writing style, and their captivating characters via an author panel exclusively for the benefit of Friends of the Maine State Library.

In honoring the Friends of the Maine State Library, First Lady LePage recognizes the commitment of the Friends as they support the program goals and objectives of the Maine State Library – primarily Reading and Literacy; Historical Resources and Digitization; Public Library Development; and to Support and Promote Maine Authors.

The event is at 2:00 p.m. on November 14 at the Blaine House in Augusta. It’s open to all Friends of the Maine State Library. Individuals are encouraged to join the Friends in advance, but also may become members at the door. Memberships range from $15 for librarians and senior citizens to $25 for individuals.
