The two writers will be reading from their work and in conversation about their inspiration and influences. Doiron and Lindquist, who are also a married couple, have lived and written side-by-side for many years, both drawing inspiration from their shared experiences in the Maine landscape.

A reception and meet-and-greet with the authors will follow, and copies of the two authors’ books will be available for purchase.
