Sunday Author Series continues
Thomaston — On Sunday, July 22 at 2 p.m., Lois Delano Faulkingham will reading from “Uncle Sam's Mistress,” her novel of love and suspense in a Maine coast town in the 1960s, in Room 200 of Thomaston Public Library, in the Thomaston Academy building on Main Street/Route 1.
Grace Beckett, the postmistress of Grace, Maine, and correspondent to the local newspaper, is trying to solve a suspicious death and other mysterious happenings … and falling in love with the man who may be at the center of the problem. Faulkingham offers an intimate view of small town life more than 50 years ago, delving into the family lives, friendships and rivalries of the good people living in Grace; and sharing the workings of one woman's heart.
The local author has two other novels in the works, one based on her family in the 1940s and another set on an island in the 1970s, as well as a book of short stories, children's and young adult pieces and some non-fiction. She has kept journals since childhood and also writes poetry. Faulkingham was Postmaster of Cushing for 20 years and has lived in the same beautiful town for most of her life.
This is the third of a four-part author series at the library. Gwen Southgate, author of the "Coin Street Chronicles," will read from her memoirs on Sunday, July 29. Public parking is located behind the Academy. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 354-2453.
