Kate Cone, April Hawks, and Katherine Silva: Monday, 10/26/2015 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Silver Street Tavern, Waterville ME. Drinks! Stories! Drinks!
Join us in our fourth year of murder, mayhem, and magic as a collection of Maine writers read from their most diabolical stories. Four of us will be at Silver Street Tavern and Restaurant this year, each writer reading for 10-15 minutes from one of their own works. Readings range from mystery to horror to thrillers. We can't wait to see you there!
Meet our readers!
