MaineVoices Live is an event series featuring conversations between Press Herald reporters and notable Maine voices.

Join us on Sep. 26 as we welcome Cathie Pelletier, the author of twelve novels. Her first was The Funeral Makers in 1986, inspired by her hometown of Allagash, Maine. Her most recent, A Year After Henry, was published in 2014 and was a finalist for the Maine Fiction Award. Two of her novels, Dancing at the Harvest Moon and Candles on Bay Street, were published under the pseudonym K.C. McKinnon. Her next book is Proving Einstein Right, a collaboration with theoretical physicist S. James Gates, Jr. It will be published in spring 2019 by Public Affairs.

Pelletier also has close ties to the music world. She’s a songwriter whose words have been sung by David Byrne, the Texas Tornados, and the Glaser Brothers and she collaborated with country icon Tanya Tucker on 100 Ways to Beat the Blues and with the late Grand Ole Opry star Skeeter Davis on The Christmas Note.

Reporter Bob Keyes will lead the conversation. Keyes has written about arts and culture for the Portland Press Herald since 2002. He loves writing about the arts in Maine because artists are interesting people and Maine is a beautiful place. He recently won the Rabkin Prize for visual arts journalism. He lives in Berwick.
