An Evening of Crime (Writing)!
Location: 314 Forest Ave, Portland, Maine 04101, US
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join the MWPA on the opening night of the Maine Crime Wave! Doors open at 5 PM with free appetizers, a cash bar, and book signing. At 5:45 PM, we will give this year’s Maine CrimeMaster Award to NYT Bestselling Author Michael Koryta, followed by a conversation between Koryta and book reviewer Katrina Niidas Holm.

At 7 PM, we will host a Two Minutes in the Slammer reading. A fabulous group of Maine crime writers will each share rip-roaring two minute samples of their work. Crime writer Zakariah Johnson will MC the reading.

These events all take place on the 7th floor of the Glickman Family Library. Parking is available for free on neighborhood streets a few minutes walk away or for $4/hr in the USM Parking Garage at 88 Bedford St.
