Cushing authors read
Cushing — Lois Delano Faulkingham and Virginia Olson will read from their books Sunday, Sept. 16 at 4 p.m. at the Cushing Library, located on upper Cross Road beyond Broad Cove Market.
Faulkingham will select excerpts from “Uncle Sam's Mistress,” her novel of love and suspense in a Maine coast town "something like Cushing" in the 1960s, when Postmaster Grace Beckett is trying to help solve a crime in which the stranger she finds herself falling love with may be involved. It offers an intimate portrait of a small town and its people.
Olson will select excerpts from her book, “John Olson — My Story,” a non-fiction story of her father's life growing up on Hathorne Point in Cushing, from his birth at the Olson House to his service during World War II, raising a family by lobster fishing and his life today.
Each author will take questions following her reading. Light refreshments will be available, and all are welcome. For more information, call 354-6619.
