Writers Forum, October 11, 10 a.m.My guests will be blogger and columnist Robin Follette and poet Elizabeth Garber. John Ford, author of Suddenly the Cider Didn't Taste So Good, was originally scheduled to join us, but now we will have him on the show in the Spring.
Robin Follette is an outdoors writer from northern Washington County. She is the publisher of Maine Nature News. Her column, The Maine Thing, appears in Lancaster Farming newspaper and her blog called Robin’s Outdoors is hosted by the Bangor Daily News. She and her husband have two grown daughters, hunters all, I believe. Robin started writing full time in 2011. She hopes to someday write a book worth reading and I'm sure she will. In the meantime, she’s having fun in Maine’s outdoors.
Elizabeth Garber Elizabeth W. Garber, 2006 Poet Laureate of Belfast, Maine, is the author of three books of poetry, True Affections: Poems from a Small Town, Listening Inside the Dance (2005) and Pierced by the Seasons (2004).
