"An Eye for Detail" will feature Camden husband-and-wife authors Paul

be joined onstage by their friend Monica Wood for a Q&A about how Maine
places and people are featured in their writings, from Paul's crime novels
to Kristen's poems and essays.
Live music will accompany Paul and Kristen during their readings, provided
by Susan Ramsey and Ruth Fogg. Susan and Ruth regularly play their violin,
guitar and cello music alongside poet Paul Corrigan of Millinocket,
although this is their first time with Paul and Kristen.
