One doesn't usually think "books" and "narrow gauge railroad" at the same time, but hey ... it's a tradition at this point. The annual Books in Boothbay gathering features dozens of Maine authors, scads of terrific books, readings, signings, you name it. Stop by, take a ride on the train and treat yourself to some great Maine reads. And yes: Maria will be there. She loves trains.
