Author Event: Irene Drago
Jul 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

We welcome Irene Drago to the Bridgton Public Library Courtyard (as weather allows)!

Award-winning author Irene M. Drago grew up in a Navy family. Before moving to Maine, she worked for the Defense Department as a Russian analyst, earned a Master of Arts degree in Spanish language and literature, and taught at the high school and college level. When she fell under the spell of a historic home in Bath, she convinced her husband to follow her to the coast of Maine where she was inspired to write Daughters of Long Reach and its sequel, The Maine Point. Ms. Drago is the recipient of a Next Generation Indie Book Award and a Spirit of Bath Award. In the summer, she and her husband enjoy piloting their boat around Casco Bay with their children and grandchildren. 

Books will be available for sale at the reading and are also available for pre-order from Bridgton Books (207-647-2122)

Author Event: Gregory Brown
Aug 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Gregory Brown will be here at the Bridgton Public Library Courtyard (as weather allows). We welcome him to read from his newest novel and answer any questions you may have on his novels or his writing.

The Lowering Days is Brown’s debut novel, set along the banks of the Penobscot River. A meditation on the flow and weight of history in the rhythm of the natural world, this exploration of the power and fragility of love is an examination of the dangerous fault lines of families and the enduring land.

Books will be available for sale at the reading and are also available for pre-order from Bridgton Books (207-647-2122)
