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.

Matthew Cost, recently selected as a Read ME author for this summer, 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.

Wolfe Trap is Cost’s debut novel in a new series surrounding a PI, Clay Wolfe, in the fictional coastal town of Port Essex, Maine. Instead of a large white shark threatening the populace, it is heroin being smuggled through lobster traps that is endangering the town.
