Ruins of Woodman’s Village


We hope to see you on Wednesday, April 19 @ 6:00 pm for a very special visit with our friend and local author Albert Waitt right here at Graves Library.  Al will be reading from his new book – The Ruins of Woodman’s Village, a coastal mystery taut with suspense and an undertow of social consciousness.

Synopsis:  When twin sisters go missing at the height of tourist season, Police Chief Tim Nichols’ summer of patrolling beaches comes to an end.  A desperate search takes him from seaside bars and abandoned farms to million-dollar estates and cobbled-together shacks.  What happens next – come hear all about it.

Albert Waitt is a writer based in Kennebunkport.  His first novel, Summer to Fall, was published in 2013 by Barrel Fire Press.  His short fiction has appeared in The Literary Review, Third Coast, The Beloit Fiction Journal, Words and Images, and other publications.  Waitt is a graduate of Bates College and the Creative Writing Program at Boston University.  Experiences ranging from slinging drinks, teaching creative writing, playing guitar for the Syphlloids, and frying clams can be found bleeding through his work.

Copies of the book will be for sale.  Light refreshments will be served.  Please call the Library for more details  (967-2778).  Supporting our local authors is very important to us.  We hope to see you here!
