Cathie Pelletier is the author of twelve novels, beginning with The Funeral Makers in 1986, which was 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 and both became TV films. The former was produced by Columbia TriStar and starred Jacqueline Bisset and Valerie Harper. The latter, produced by Hallmark Hall of Fame starred Alicia Silverstone. 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.

Bob Keyes, an award-winning Portland Press Herald arts reporter, will lead the conversation as we hear firsthand stories from Cathie about her multi-faceted career and her part in Maine’s literary legacy.
