Humphrey wraps Friends series
Waldoboro — Author Shonna Milliken Humphrey will speak Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. in the final program of the 2012 Friends of the Library speakers series at the Waldoboro Public Library, 958 Main St./Route 220.
Humphrey, former executive director of the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, is the author of “Show Me Good Land,” a modern-day novel set in Aroostook County that was published last year by Down East Books. The book is a realistic portrait of people living in a once-thriving rural community that is now struggling. Humphrey writes with an authentic Maine voice that places her in the company of Richard Russo, Elizabeth Strout and Carolyn Chute.
The program is free and the public is welcome. Books will be available for purchase and signing, cash or check only. For more information, call the library at 832-4484 or visit waldoborolibrary.org.
