The literary arts committee of the Belfast Free Library is excited to announce that a new author lecture series, Maine Writers Talk About…is coming to the library beginning in May 2013.

Story continues below advertisement.

Six stellar Maine authors: Debra Spark, Monica Wood, Rhea-Cote Robbins, Bill Roorbach, Elizabeth Hand, and Jaed Coffin will join us for an evening series of individual writer’s talks and readings once per month from May through November. For this series each writer has chosen a topic and will talk about their writing process and craft as well as read from their work.

The Maine Writers Talk About …series will begin Tuesday May 14th at 6:30 pm with award winning author Debra Spark speaking about “Where Stories Come From”.

The series has been made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Belfast Free Library. For more information about the upcoming authors in the series visit,

Spark is the author of three novels, two works of non-fiction and many articles. Her most recent book, “The Pretty Girl” (April 2012) is a novella and six stories that revolve around the theme of artists, artistry, and the magical—sometimes malicious—deceptions they create. She is a professor at Colby College and teaches in the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College. She lives with her husband and son in North Yarmouth, Maine.
