We had a terrific discussion last night in Jackson about Dead by Dawn as well as a brainstorming session about our favorite book series. I thought it would be fun to extend that to offering all our participating libraries readers the chance to participate. I hope that by our big event on October 28th, we’ll have a good list of local favorites!
During the month of October, leading up to our big event with the author on October 28, many of our participating libraries are hosting a book discussion of one or all of Paul Doiron’s books in the Mike Bowditch series.
Find one online or at a library near you (or maybe one that’s further afield if you’re up for a road trip).
The 15th One Book One Valley community read program is underway. Sixteen public libraries throughout the region and White Birch Books are pleased to announce that this year the featured author is Paul Doiron, who writes the Mike Bowditch series of crime novels.
All are invited to an evening with Doiron, when he will talk about his books and writing, Thursday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the newly renovated Majestic Theatre in Conway Village.* This event will also be live-streamed. To register for the livestream link, go to https://rentals.anywhereseat.com/
Doiron is the former editor of Down East magazine and a registered Maine Guide. He now writes full time, and recently published the twelfth book in his crime novel series featuring the character Mike Bowditch, a Maine Game Warden.
*For those planning to attend the live event, wear a mask while inside, and please read and follow the recently adopted Vaccination Policy for the Majestic Theatre.
One Book One Valley will be back in 2021! Mark your calendars for our big author event: Thursday, October 28, 2021 at 7:00 PM at the newly renovated Majestic Theatre in Conway Village. We’ll also be livestreaming the event, which is very exciting. Participating libraries will have copies of Paul Doiron’s newest book, Dead by Dawn to lend by the beginning of July, and will be happy to lend any of his previous books if you’re just getting started or catching up with the Mike Bowditch series.
