Have dinner with Jenny and Deedie/Grace Boylan. Or 10 other Maine writers.

star-wars-emperor1Good! Good! Give in to your hunger!

The Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance is having a special night in honor of its 35th birthday.  On Thursday August 12, you can join Jenny Boylan and her spouse Deedie at FORE STREET–our favorite restaurant–in Portland Maine, starting at 5:30.

Or, if you prefer, you could dine at a different place with Richard Ford. Or Ann Beattie. Or Richard Russo.  Or a half dozen others.

If the cover fee is too much for ya, you could join us at the SECOND special event that night about 7 PM, in the Portland Public Library, at 7 PM, for champagne.

Or you could just hang out with us at the all-night swing dance at Space Gallery, starting at 8:30.

If you’ve always wanted to sit down with the Boylans and ask us the question everyone MOST wants to ask us and is too polite to ask–you know, “What is Oprah Winfrey REALLY LIKE?”, we hope you’ll join us for dinnerr on 8/12.

Space is extremely limited.  So follow this link right here to the MWPA site for more information and for reservations. Oh, I’m afraid Jenny and Deedie will be eating dinner when you arrive at this FULLY OPERATIONAL BATTLE STATION.

See you in August!

    Edward had been my teacher at Johns Hopkins in the winter of 1986. He visited Colby in fall, 2007. As we took our leave of each other, he kissed me on both cheeks and said, "We have done well. You and I."

    Jack was my professor at JHU when I did my thesis, back in the day. After many years, I can now confidently say I finally understand his definition of plot. Which is, of course, "the perturbation of an unstable homeostatic system and its catastrophic restoration to a new and complexified equilibrium."
