The 2016 Beyond the Sea Book Festival is set for Saturday, July 30, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Beyond The Sea, 2526 Atlantic Highway/Route 1. This year’s event will host some 36 Maine authors for book signing and selling.

The authors are scheduled for two-hour signings, with multiple authors on hand in the two-story venue simultaneously throughout the day. They include Paul Doiron, Kate Flora, Christopher Morin, David Hill and many more.

Beyond the Sea’s Nanette H. Gionfriddo previously produced the Belfast Bound Book Festival, in 2011 and 2012; and, since 2014, the Beyond the Sea Book Festival at her shop across from Lincolnville Beach. For the complete schedule of festival events, visit; and Beyond the Sea’s Facebook page.
