Maine Authors Book Festival

Saturday, August 24 –

Event Time: 11:00am-3:00pm

At the Maine Authors Publishing Building and grounds, located on the hill near the General Knox Museum. High St will be closed for parking. Parking is also available in the Montpelier parking lot.
12 High St, Thomaston

A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to support the Maine Humanities Council’s Harriet P. Henry Center for the Book. Thirty-one authors will be in attendance. There will be two slideshow presentations by authors Jeffrey H. Ryan and Carolyn Locke. From 11:30 a.m. –12:30 p.m., Ryan will present “Chasing the Story of the Mysterious Hermit Jim Whyte.” Ryan will answer the questions: How do you research and tell the story of a Maine hermit that lived almost 100 years ago in Monson, Maine, and what surprising discoveries are there to be shared? Ryan’s quest led him to write his acclaimed book: Hermit: The Mysterious Life of Jim Whyte. A Q&A will follow the presentation. From 1:30–2:30 p.m., Locke will present “Poems and Images,” a reading and slideshow of original travel and nature photographs and collaboration with artists Diane Green Minor and Victoria Pittman. A Q&A with Maine Authors Publishing will follow. Carolyn Locke is the author of Always This Falling, Not One Thing, The Place We Become, and The Riddle of Yes. Locke has been a Maine Authors Publishing author since the start of the company in 2009, and she just published her fourth poetry collection. Tours of the historic building will be conducted throughout the day (located on the hill near the General Knox Mansion).
