Readings from: “Rivers of Ink: Literary Reflections on the Penobscot”

May 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

 Join us for an evening of readings by local poets and writers to showcase Rivers of Ink: Literary Reflections on the Penobscot, a remarkable charity anthology produced in collaboration with this year’s Bangor Authors’ Fair and Literary Festival.

Rivers of Ink showcases the talents of 61 local writers, a mix of established and new names, including Sherri Mitchell, Ret Talbot, Christopher Packard, Rhea Cote Robbins, Patricia Smith Ranzoni, Mo Drammeh, and J.D. Mankowski. What unites them all is the exceptional quality of their work. The anthology features a rich tapestry of stories, essays, and poems, ranging from tales of ghosts and river monsters to the history of logging in Maine and the efforts to rehabilitate the Penobscot after years of neglect.

Featured authors at the Belfast reading will be: James Brasfield, Kathleen Ellis, Jean Anne Feldeisen, Hank Garfield, Annaliese Jakimides, Catherine J.S.Lee , Leslie Moore, Catherine Schmitt, Brenda E. Smith, Karin Spitfire, Ret Talbot.

Books will be available for purchase at the event. Proceeds from Rivers of Ink will be donated to the Friends of Katahdin Woods & Waters’ campaign “A Monumental Welcome,” which will provide funding for a visitor contact station, priority park projects, and Wabanaki-directed projects.
