Author Event: Robert W. Spencer

Robert lives in southern Oxford County Maine among the foothills of the White Mountains. His three-title Lizzie Millett Series is set in this rural area of rivers, lakes and forests. His writing brings to life the people and life in small town, rural Maine between the years of 1860 and 1910, a time of wide-spread modernization. While these three titles are well-researched historical fiction, he refers to them as novels about relationships in an historic setting.

In Hunger Hill, a novice hitwoman makes rookie mistakes, and the bodies start piling up in Portland, Maine.

American Roulette with Pat LaMarche and Andy Carey

A concern for the increasing scourge of gun violence in America brought together nine authors to write American Roulette. Most are award winners. All are standouts in their field. They write for every genre: novels, non-fiction, kids’ lit, academic publications, journalism, broadcast, and blogs.

American Roulette is a blockbuster novel full of tension, dread, and anguish. One unremarkable Friday in April, a stream of ordinary people make their way to Liberty Mall in Anywhere, USA. American Roulette tells the story of eight of those people. At 5:17 PM, one of these characters’ actions will change the lives of all the others.

Join authors Pat LaMarche and Andy Carey to have a discussion about gun violence and the impacts on responders, average citizens, and children, as well as the importance of dialogue about this issue if we hope to find a solution.
