STOCKTON SPRINGS – The Stockton Springs Community Library (SSCL), 6 Station St., features three local authors from Maine Authors Publishing and Cooperative Wednesday, August 17 at 6:30 p.m. Participating writers are William Anthony, Hans Krichels and Janet Williams.
Anthony lives primarily in Maine with his wife, an English Lab and a Maine Coon cat. When he’s not writing or painting, he’s on the Damariscotta River in the Suzanne B., a wooden boat built in Maine. His book “Farnsy” is a novel featuring William Phineas Farnsworth (Farnsy), a young policeman from his hometown on the Maine coast. He loves police work, but his relationship with Lucy is broken again, and as he approaches his 35th birthday, he feels trapped in a life as predictable as the tides – until Necco wafers mysteriously appear in summer cottages on nearby lakes. Anthony paints a rich picture of a Maine town and its dynamic characters.
Krichels is a teacher, writer and woodcarver who lives with his partner, Nancy, in Bucksport, where he has lived and worked since 1971. His recent book, “We Have Met the Enemy”, is a collection of essays, scree and stories. poems all based on observations and events during the days of the pandemic in the author’s city. His recent work also includes pieces in “Goose River Anthology 2019” and “Willie Knows Who Done It”, a Maine-based collection of stories.
Williams grew up in England and immigrated to the United States when she was 20. She worked and raised her family in Cleveland and retired to Maine in 2007. Always an animal lover, all of her dogs and cats come from a shelter or the streets. . Her recent book, “Maxx and Mrs. Queen,” is a heartwarming and unusual story of animal rescue. Maxx, Harry, Greta, Tootsie, and ZaZa were homeless themselves until Uncle Oscar found them one cold, dark night and brought them home. At Mrs. Queen’s invitation, Uncle Oscar takes his family to the palace for tea, and so begins this imaginative story of animal rescue.
