LOVELL — A variety of Maine authors will share their personal backstories, as well as their connections to Maine, followed by readings and an online Q&A, during a monthly series presented by the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library.

Alex Myers kicked off the series in August. This month features “Cozy Mystery” author and Maine Literary Award winner, Barbara Ross. The ninth novel in her popular series, the “Maine Clambake Mysteries,” will be released this winter. She is also the author of the Jane Darrowfield (Professional Busybody) mystery series, with a new release coming in October.

“A cleverly crafted, character-driven whodunit that engages readers both intellectually and emotionally. The pace is swift, the dialogue is sharp, and Ross’s artful prose evokes a strong sense of place and brings her characters to life,” says Crime Spree Magazine.

The following events are on the calendar:

Thursday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m.: Barbara Ross, Cozy Mystery author
Thursday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m.: Robert Spencer, self-published novelist
Thursday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m.: Kate Christensen, NYT best selling novelist and memoirist
