Join us as we welcome Maine author Julia Spencer-Fleming to the library. A former military brat, NYT and USA Today bestselling novelist Julia Spencer-Fleming grew up in places as diverse as Montgomery, Rome, Stuttgart, and Syracuse, A Graduate of Ithica College, George Washington University, and the University of Maine School of Law, she took up writing while still a stay-at-home mother of two. During the time it took to finish her first novel, she got a full-time job at a Portland, Maine law firm and had a third child. Julia didn’t want to write yet another lawyer-sleuth, so she used her army past and a keen eye for the goings-on at her Episcopal church to create Clare Fergusson, first female priest in the small Adirondack town of Millers Kill. The resulting series has won or been nominated for every American mystery award available, including the Edgar, the Anthony, and the Agatha. The 9th book in her series, Hid From Our Eyes, will be out in April, 2020. Gibran Graham owner of the Briar Patch bookstore in Bangor will have books for sale.
