The O'Briens in Maine

I'm reading from my novel The O'Briens (A major accomplishment--NYTBR), talking about  Irish-Americans (and -Canadians), and showing slides from the O'Briens archive tonight, Thursday July 19, at 7pm at the Blue Hill Public Library in Blue Hill, Maine. There will be books for sale and I'll be happy to sign 'em. The childrens' librarian is organizing a kids' "campout" in the library at the same time, so children are welcome. You are too. More event info here.

Next Tuesday July 24 at 6p.m. I'll be doing the same thing at Falmouth (Maine) Memorial Library. No campout in Falmouth, though.
