Nature-Themed Mysteries & Thrillers and . . . Truth

  • Wiscasset Public Library 21 High St Wiscasset, Maine 04578 U.S. (map)

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that “fiction reveals truth that reality obscures,” and he might have been right about the novel “Deadly Trespass.”

Debut author Sandra Neily offers readers both entertainment and discovery. “I wrote this book to take people who love Maine (those who know its woods well and those who don’t) on a field trip into a world at risk. I wanted to create a story that urged readers on from page to page, so they’d arrive at the last page, feeling like they had pitch on their hands and a clear view of what might be lost.”

Join award winning author Neily at the Wiscasset Public Library as she shares her novel “Deadly Trespass,” and how she and other authors have crafted story telling around urgent and timely stories that feature our natural world. Neily won a national Mystery Writers of America McCloy award, was a national finalist in the Women’s Fiction Writers Association’s “Rising Star,” contest, and recently was a fiction finalist in Maine’s “Joy of the Pen” competition.

A native of East Boothbay, she’s been a Registered Maine Guide, the Director of the Maine Conservation School, and Maine Audubon’s Outreach Coordinator. Sandra reads passages from “Deadly Trespass,” (reviewed as “...a beautiful book that brilliantly captures the battle to conserve Maine’s mythical woods...”) and shares her own list of outdoor based mysteries and thrillers and the issues they illuminate. She hopes guests will bring their favorite out-door fiction to help grow her list.

At the Wiscasset Public Library, Wednesday, December 6, 2017, 5:00 PM. No charge; light refreshments.
