Think coloring is just for kids?  Not anymore!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books?  First of all, it’s just plain fun!  But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.
 
The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30am and color for an hour or so.  The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons.  Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group, which numbered eight coloring enthusiasts at the first meeting!

Author Talk - Bruce Coffin "Beneath the Depths"
Wednesday, Nov. 1, 6:30 PM
Join us this evening for a book talk with Maine author Bruce Robert Coffin. His second novel, Beaneath The Depths, published by Harper Collins and released August 2017, is the second title in his John Byron Mystery series. Bruce is a former detective sergeant with more than twenty-seven years of law enforcement under his belt. At the time of his retirement from the Portland police department, he supervised all homicide and violent crime investigations for Maine's largest city. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11th, Bruce spent four years working counter-terrorism with the FBI, earning the Director's Award - the highest honor a non-agent can receive. In addition to his new John Byron Mystery Series, Bruce's short fiction has appeared in several anthologies, including Fool Proof in 2016 Best American Mystery Stories released October 2016. Among the Shadows is a taut, atmospheric thriller that will appeal to fans of Michael Connelly and John Sandford. "Bruce Robert Coffin is the real deal: not just a veteran homicide detective, but an incredibly gifted storyteller. Among the Shadows is the best debut I've read in ages, filled with suspense, great writing, a perfectly realized setting in Portland, Maine (this is probably the most accurate depiction I've seen of that big little city), and an intriguing main character. Detective John Byron promises to become a break-out favorite among readers of crime fiction. He's already one of mine." - Paul Doiron, author of Widowmaker
