Martinsville — Jackson Memorial Library will cap the 10th anniversary Summer Literary Series welcoming back Bill Roorbach Tuesday, July 25. The award-winning author and Maine resident has published fiction and nonfiction works including “Big Bend,” which won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction and the O. Henry Prize for Short Stories.

The Summer Literary Series events take place at the Ocean View Grange, 435 Port Clyde Road/Route 131 and begin with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Roorbach was wildly received at his first visit in 2015. This time, he will be reading from his new book of short stories, “The Girl of the Lake.”

Roorbach has taught at the University of Maine at Farmington, Ohio State University and Colby College. He was awarded the William H.P. Jenks Chair of Contemporary American Letters at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass. In 2009, he returned to Maine and devoted himself to full-time writing.
