Events

 

Currently, I am taking a retreat from author events to focus on finishing my second book, the story of another compelling and enlightening journey. Those events scheduled for April and May 2020 have been postponed. It would, however, give me great joy to initiate plans for author talks, book signings, or presentations about the Northern Forest Canoe Trail for a future date. Please be in touch with me at lmtchandler@yahoo.com. Take care!

UPCOMING EVENTS


2020 Hopes and Dreams

With prayers for the future when we can once more safely gather together, I continue to plan for events later in the year. Here is a sampling of what is in the works: a July book signing at the Waterford Library, the August Maine Authors Publishing Maine Author Book Fair, and a joyful return to the Greenville Fly-in, Millinocket Trails End Festival, Common Ground Fair, UMaine Alumni Craft Show, and Bangor Harvest Festival.

Most especially, the launch of my new book will be a highlight of 2020!
