Damariscotta — Best-selling author Paul Doiron of Camden will read from and discuss his newest novel, “Massacre Pond,” Saturday, Dec. 14, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the downtown Maine Coast Bookstore.

Doiron is Editor Emeritus of Down East: The Magazine of Maine, having served as Editor in Chief from 2005 to 2013 before stepping down to write full-time. The Maine native attended Yale University, where he graduated with a degree in English, and he holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College.

Doiron also is a Registered Maine Guide specializing in fly fishing and outdoor recreation; he and his wife, poet Kristin Lindquist, live beside a trout stream.

“Massacre Pond,” Doiron’s latest thriller to feature Game Warden Mike Bowditch, spins a tale about a beautiful, enigmatic woman whose mission to save the Maine wilderness may have incited a murder. It was an Indie Next pick and an Indie Favorite, as well as a Bookscan Bestseller.
