“The Stones of Ailsa Craig” with David Florig

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

The Camden Public Library welcomes author David Florig for a reading and discussion of his debut novel, The Stones of Ailsa Craig, on Tuesday, December 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the Picker Room and on Zoom. The event will include readings, a curling stone made from 60-million-year-old granite, Q&A, and book signing. All ages are welcome.

Have you ever wondered about the sport of curling? What is with the ice, the stone, and the broom that has captured the interest of millions of fans and found its place in the Olympics? Quiet City Books is delighted to introduce Florig’s historical fiction novel, set in present-day Belfast, Maine, and in 1880s Scotland. The novel is centered around the ancient Scottish sport of curling and features a foreword by Olympic curler Tara Peterson.

Although curling provides the context, the book will appeal to fans of historical fiction and mysteries.

This is a hybrid program that will take place in the Picker Room and on Zoom. To attend virtually, register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_c_IkF6LkQmqZUK5ijWcHKg

David Florig is a member of the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, as well as a member and past-president of the Pine Tree Curling Club in Portland. The Stones of Ailsa Craig is his debut novel and is an homage to Belfast, Maine; the glorious Maine coast; and the ancient Scottish sport of curling.

David lives in Ocean Park, Maine with his wife of thirty-five years, Nancy, and their ill-mannered rescue dog, Molly Malone.
