National Library Week is April 8-14 and in celebration, Topsham Public Library welcomes author Bruce Coffin on Thursday, April 12 at 6pm. Coffin is the bestselling author of the Detective Byron mystery series and a former detective sergeant with more than twenty-seven years in law enforcement.
At the time of his retirement, from the Portland, Maine police department, he supervised all homicide and violent crime investigations for Maine’s largest city. Bruce also spent four years working counter-terrorism with the FBI, where he earned the Director’s Award, the highest honor a non-agent can receive. All of his experience forms the background and provides authenticity to his books.
Bruce is a member of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters In Crime New England, and the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. He is also a regular contributor to the Maine Crime Writers Blog and Murder Books Blog.
Books will be available for purchase and signing. Our programs are free and open to the public. So, come on over and celebrate libraries, reading, and community!
