Earl Smith speaks about “More Dam Trouble”
Location: Main Library
Audience: Adults, Seniors
Earl Smith’s writing is a delight and so is this latest chapter in the life of Belfry Village, Maine. MORE DAM TROUBLE, a stand-alone sequel to THE DAM COMMITTEE, catches us up with a cast of characters (including a very wise dog named Winston) that is engaging and likable from the first page. Smith’s affection for the place is palpable, as is his understanding of its people. I finished this small-town mystery and was already longing for number three. When you’re away from Earl Smith’s Belfry Village, you miss it terribly.
– GERRY BOYLE, author of the Jack McMorrow mystery series, including DAMAGED GOODS
