Murder mystery program on Monhegan

Posted:  Wednesday, August 2, 2017 - 10:45am

The Monhegan Memorial Library is delighted to announce a program by Maine mystery writer Paul Doiron to take place on Monhegan Island, Aug. 4-6.

A Murder Mystery Party will be held at the Partridge Cottage at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4; an Author Talk by Paul Doiron at the Monhegan Church at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 5; and a Q & A for writers at 10:30 a.m. (advance sign-up required for this) at the Monhegan Memorial Library on Sunday, Aug. 6.

Doiron is a Camden writer and the author of the Mike Bowditch of crime novels. The first book of the series, “The Poacher’s Son,” was nominated for an Edgar Award and called “an adventure worthy of its magnificent Maine setting.” (Julia Spencer-Fleming).

Often praised for his sense of place, Mr. Doiron is active in the Maine outdoors scene that his novels draw from, working as a Registered Maine Guide specializing in fly fishing. He is also an editor emeritus of Down East Magazine, having served as editor in chief from 2005 to 2013.

Doiron’s visit will be the second program in the MML Distinguished Writers Series, established last summer. We are pleased to announce that this year’s event is in memory of James Rubin.
