Author Talk: Moe Claire

Local mystery author Moe Claire will be speaking on the main floor of the library on Thursday, July 20th at 6:00 pm about her newest book Black Veil, White Rose.

About Black Veil, White Rose: A boat trip to a quiet, pristine cove nestled in a peninsula just east of Pyke Island leads to an unwelcome discovery. The property around the cove was once considered an ideal place for a shorefront campground, but bankruptcy led to the property being abandoned. Then the squatters moved in, and the good neighbors of Des Isle, an exclusive summer community, tried everything in their power to remove them. All that happened years ago and was resolved when the squatters left voluntarily.

Or did they? Under the cove’s placid surface, a mystery lies on the gravel and sand bottom waiting to be snagged. Not surprisingly, Del Corriveau and friends find it and raise the ghosts, some dead, some very much alive, still keeping their secrets.

Retired from a career in computer science, Moe Claire describes herself as a insatiable reader and a lifelong learner who is fascinated by all things science (particularly geology). When not writing, she teaches literature courses, enjoys summer and winter in Acadia National Park, and volunteers for several local non-profits. She and her husband have explored Downeast Maine islands and harbors in their old Cape Dory cruiser but are currently between boats.
