Moore to lead writer’s workshop


AUBURN — In a program especially for aspiring writers, author James P. Moore will visit the Auburn Public Library at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4, to share personal insights about the writing process, how to plot for suspense and the business side of writing.

Moore is a freelance writer and author of “Human Sacrifice,” about the 1988 murder of Sara Cherry in Bowdoinham. Moore is a graduate of Fort Kent Community High School and the University of Maine. After serving with the U.S. Army in Korea, he spent 25 years working for the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms division of the U.S. Treasury, including assignments with Interpol and as head agent for Maine and New Hampshire.

After retiring from the ATF, Moore got his private investigator’s license and began working as a freelance writer. His work has appeared in various periodicals, including Newsweek.

The free program will be held in the Androscoggin Community Room. The program is sponsored by the Lewiston-Auburn Writers Network, but a limited number of spots are available for aspiring writers from the general public.

Advance registration is required. For more information or to reserve a spot, call the Library Reference Desk at 333-6640, ext. 4.
