Framing Maine Three: An Eye for Detail
November 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Maine writers Paul Doiron and Kristen Lindquist will be the featured guests of the third installment of the Framing Maine conversation series at the University of Maine.
Doiron and Lindquist, who are married, are both heavily inspired by Maine’s wild places. Doiron, former editor of Down East magazine, is best known for his popular series of mystery novels set in Maine, where a game warden named Mike Bowditch solves crimes. Lindquist is a poet, naturalist, birder and educator, whose writing has appeared in magazines, newspapers, literary journals and anthologies.
During the event, Doiron and Lindquist will read selections from their respective works; discuss their craft; and describe how Maine places, people and wildlife have influenced their writing. Live music inspired by the readings will be provided by violinist Susan Ramsey and cellist Ruth Fogg. Following the reading, Doiron and Lindquist will be interviewed onstage by their friend and author Monica Wood.
A reception with the authors will precede the event from 6–7 p.m. at Miller’s Cafe in the Collins Center for the Arts.
The event is free and open to the public. Due to limited seating, registration is required. Tickets can be reserved online.
