Bangor Book Festival, Oct 2-3

Our friends from the Maine Office of Tourism recently sent us information on the third annual Bangor Book Festival to be held on October 2-3, 2009.

Hosted by the Bangor Public Library, this event will start with an opening reception and keynote address from best-selling novelist Douglas Preston. Author readings, book discussions, and programs on writing and illustration are scheduled for this educational and entertaining event. Local and regional authors will also discuss their work in the categories of Maine history, Native American history, earth science, landscaping, architectural photography, and historical fiction. Additionally, the Book Festival will feature two children's book readings, as well as authors being available to sign books. For more information on the Bangor Book Festival, visit or call 207-947-8336.

By the way, we think you'll love Bangor. It's really an underrated New England city that has a small-town feel with big city amenities like plenty of dining, and attractions like the Maine Discovery Museum (the largest children's museum north of Boston), the Bangor Museum and Center for History, the 31-ft. tall Paul Bunyan statue, and the Maine Forest and Lodging Museum. What's more, Bangor is about an hour from Acadia National Park, one of the true jewels of the northeast United States with its breathtaking scenes of mountains meeting the ocean!
