BOOK SIGNING – THE BIKE COP @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library
Aug 16 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join us on Thursday, August 16 at 6:00 pm to welcome James Bruner, author of The Bike Cop in The Greater Weight of Evidence.  Mr. Bruner will be here to read from his books and sell/sign copies.

“Port Talbot is a tourist trap in the summah located on the southern coast of Maine. The wealth and pedigree of the summer folk is legendary with their cottages on the rocky bluffs. The population quadruples from June to September. The traffic snarls around the cedar-shingled shops in the port, bringing things to a standstill. Enter the college-aged bicycle policeman. In the summer of 77, the chief of police has chosen David Digger Davenport, the son of one of the richest summer families who winter in Lake Placid, New York. Diggers history of solving crime starts in chapter one in a flashback to when he was eleven years old and when he went fishing alone and hooked the partially decomposed body of the chef of the Brigantine Hotel.” [Amazon.com]

Mr. Bruner been summering in Maine since 1957.  When not writing, he is an admitted attorney in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and Florida.

KENNEBUNKPORT LAUNCH OF “BOUND FOR GOLD” by WILLIAM MARTIN @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library
Aug 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

New York Times best-selling author, William Martin will join us on Sunday, August 19th at 2:00 to launch his new book, Bound for Gold published by Forge Books, July 3, 2018.

Bound for Gold continues New York Times bestselling author William Martin’s epic of American history with the further adventures of Boston rare-book dealer Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline Carrington. They are headed to California, where their search for a lost journal takes them into the history of Gold Rush. The journal follows young James Spencer, of the Sagamore Mining Company, on a spectacular journey from staid Boston, up the Sacramento River to the Mother Lode. During his search for a “lost river of gold,” Spencer confronts vengeance, greed, and racism in himself and others, and builds one of California’s first mercantile empires.

In the present, Peter Fallon’s son asks his father for help appraising the rare books in the Spencer estate and reconstructing Spencer’s seven-part journal, which has been stolen from the California Historical Society. Peter and Evangeline head for modern San Francisco and quickly discover that there’s something much bigger and more dangerous going on, and Peter’s son is in the middle of it. Turns out, that lost river of gold may be more than a myth (Amazon.com).

Mr. Martin has numerous literary accomplishments in the realm of historical novels including, The Lost Constitution, Citizen Washington, Back Bay, and The Lincoln Letter.   In 2015, the USS CONSTITUTION Museum gave him the Samuel Eliot Morison Award for “patriotic pride, artful scholarship, and an eclectic interest in the sea and things maritime.”

Mr. Martin will present his research and writing of the “lost river of gold.”  Tickets ($20.00) will be sold at the Library starting August 1st.  Price includes the talk, a wine and cheese reception, and intimate discussion with the author.  All proceeds benefit the Capital Campaign for the new Mothers Wing.  Limited seating available.  Please call for further information  (967-2778).
