Maine Writers Series Book Club!

New this year at Porter Memorial Library is a Book Club offered in conjunction with the University of Maine at Machias “Maine Writers Series.” The Maine Writers Series, supported by the Libra Foundation, invites four published writers each year to read their works and interact with aspiring writers at UMM and in the community.

The Book Club portion of the Maine Writers Series will meet at Porter Memorial Library at 2 p.m. on the Saturday before a guest author does a reading at UMM. Book Club meetings are free and open to community members and UMM students alike. Teens and adults are welcome. Porter Memorial Library will make three copies of each title available to book club participants on a first-come first-serve basis. Dates for the Book Club meetings are September 17, 2016; November 12, 2016; March 4, 2017; and April 1, 2017. Call Porter Memorial Library at 255-3933 to sign up for the Book Club.
