Blue Hill Library Hosting Authors



BLUE HILL — Paul Doiron, author of the Mike Bowditch series of crime novels, and C.J. Box, the New York Times bestselling author of 13 novels, including the Joe Pickett series, will read from their new books at the Blue Hill Public Library on Tuesday, Aug. 30, at 7 p.m.

Doiron will read from his latest book, “Trespasser,” and Box will read from “Back of Beyond.” Both authors’ work features a fictional game warden as their primary character.

The event is being co-sponsored by the Blue Hill Public Library and Blue Hill Books. There is no charge and all are welcome. Books will be available for sale and signing.

On Thursday, Sept. 1, at 7 p.m. author Philip Conkling, who is also president and founder of the Rockland-based Island Institute, will present an illustrated talk on the cultural and natural history of Penobscot Bay and its islands. The talk will be based on the new third edition of his book “Islands in Time: A Natural and Cultural History of the Islands of the Gulf of Maine,” which was first published in 1982.

The new, expanded third edition of “Islands in Time” contains over 300 images by photographer Peter Ralston.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.
