“In 1797 Captain George Butler has returned home with is wife, Nelly, and the beginnings of a family. A successful sea captain turned merchant, George is financially well-off and a pillar of his community. But lurking in the shadows is the young Lydia Blaisdell. She and George have a history, and it’s all about to unfold in an epic tale with a supernatural twist. Based on a true
story, The Gathering Room – A Tale of Nelly Butler is a gripping retelling of a piece of Maine folklore that will keep you engaged from beginning to end.” (Maine Author’s publishing)
Come and enjoy appetizers and a glass of wine as Ms. Shore weaves the mystery of a piece of Maine’s earliest folklore. The reading will start promptly at 2:00pm. Her book will be available for purchase and she will personally sign it for you. It will make a great Mother’s Day gift for that special mother who enjoys a little mystery and intrigue. Door prizes will be awarded at the
conclusion of the event.
