Blue Hill Public Library
5 Parker Point Rd, Blue Hill, ME, 04614

Blue Hill summer resident and author Beth Gutcheon will read from her recently published book The Affliction on Tuesday, July 31st at 7:00 PM at the Blue Hill Public Library. This book “delivers the second installment in her clever romp of a mystery series combining social comedy and dark-hearted murder—a novel set at a girls’ boarding school in a picturesque Hudson River town with more than its share of secrets.”

Since 1978 when her first novel, The New Girls, was published, Gutcheon has made her living full-time as a storyteller. She is the author of nine previous novels, including Still Missing, More Than You Know, and Gossip, and of many commissioned screenplays, including for the 20th Century Fox feature film, Without a Trace, based on Still Missing. She has also contributed to New York Magazine, Savvy Magazine, The New York Times, the NYT Book Review, the San Jose Mercury News, the San Francisco Chronicle, Conde Nast Traveler, and many other periodicals. When not in the area, Beth Gutcheon lives in New York City with her husband and also her elderly poodle, Daisy Buchanan.

Books will be available for sale and signing. This event is sponsored by the Library and Blue Hill Books. There is no charge, and everyone is welcome. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
