PARIS – William D. Andrews, author of “Stealing History,” a Maine mystery set at a busy historical society and museum, will sign copies of his book at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 24, at the Paris Hill Historical Society.

Published by Maine-based Islandport Press, “Stealing History” revolves around Julie Williamson who takes a job as historical society director in a Maine mountain town. She expected to find an eccentric board of trustees and a cool reception from the assistant director who wants her job, but she didn’t expect that some of the museum’s most valuable artifacts, including a letter from Abraham Lincoln to Hannibal Hamlin, would turn up missing. And then a murder hits especially close to home.

Andrews, former president of Westbrook College in Portland, is now a consultant, freelance editor and writer. This is his first novel.

For more information, call the historical society, located at 48 Tremont St., at 743-5409.
