Coming Up at Longfellow Books...!

Join us Wednesday, September 13th, from 4-9 pm to celebrate the launch of Bruce Coffin's new novel, Beneath the Depths!

Coffin's debut novel, Among the Shadows, has become a perennial best-seller, and introduced Portland to a new cast of local crime fighters.  We'll be at Mast Landing Brewery in Westbrook starting at 4 PM.  All are welcome.

In this latest gripping mystery from bestselling author Bruce Robert Coffin, Detective Sergeant John Byron is backand ready to prove that no one on his beat is above the law. 

When the body of prominent Portland attorney Paul Ramsey turns up in the bottom of Casco Bay, following his loss of a multimillion dollar civil trial, Byron knows it's no accidental drowning. Golden boy Ramsey had a dark side—and Byron believes the key to solving his murder lies in uncovering those secrets someone wanted buried along with him. 

With the brilliant Detective Diane Joyner by his side, Byron takes on Ramsey's former employer, the powerhouse law firm of Newman, Branch & DeWitt. But delving further into the troubled waters of Ramsey's past only serves to lengthen the list of suspects—unleashing a perfect storm of corruption, betrayal, and murder that only Byron can stop. If he's not too late.

Longfellow News

Please join us on the first friday of each month at 7PM for community night at Longfellow Books. We have become disturbed by the policies being enacted by the new administration, and feel strongly that, if nothing else, we need to provide a space for all in our community to come together and work to reverse some of these trends. Read on for more details, and we look forward to seeing you Friday night.

To that end, we will be keeping the store open every First Friday from 7- 9 PM, for community use.  We will supply postcards and stamps free of charge for anyone wishing to reach out to our elected officials either at the federal or local level. We will have tables and chairs out for people to meet and share ideas, organize, etc.  

If you represent a group that would like to have a representative present to speak or distribute materials, please contact us.  

One important note--we’re happy to have all political viewpoints join in this very important conversation. Debate and disagreement are the hallmarks of our society. But so are respect and decency, inclusion and love. We will not tolerate messages or actions of hatred and discrimination in our store, in our community, or in our country.
