One of the authors at the 3d Annual Maynard Book Festival is Ann Hood. I had read her earlier books and really liked them and somehow she just slipped off my radar. Delighted that having her at the Festival gives me a chance to catch up with some of her later books. Her books that I read and enjoyed are Somewhere off the Coast of Maine and The Knitting Circle. Have The Obituary Writer as a friend loan on my couch so that will be my next read of hers. Hope you are planning to join us on April 12 when she will be on a panel with Jennifer Haigh (another favorite of mine) and CB Anderson (a new author to explore).
