Wednesday, December 3 at 6:30 PM - Book Talk with  author Frank O Smith
He will read from his newly released 
Dream Singer (5 stars on Amazon) at Cumberland's Prince Memorial Library, refreshments, 266 Main Street. FMI: 829-2215
Dream Singer is the story of a Native American elder who lives solitarily in the mountains of the West. As a young man, he possessed the rare gift of dream singing–the ability to see the future—which he lost due to a selfish act. As a result, he became estranged from his family, his Modoc heritage, and from himself. But a seemingly chance crossing of paths with a thirteen-year-old runaway boy, a witness to a murder in a rail yard, dramatically changes their destinies. Dream Singer is a story of the betrayal of love and the quest for redemption, where listening to dreams and the spirit of the land is vital.

Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides, says, “Elijah McCloud is a great character in American literature. Smith writes lyrically of his world, the American West, what once was and still is. Part love story, tragedy, and mystery, Dream Singer is a free-rolling journey of the heart.”

Frank O Smith is a journalist and corporate consultant. He is also a novelist, teacher, and writing coach. He was raised in the West, lived in the South, and has resided in Maine for nearly thirty years. His novel Dream Singer was a finalist for the Bellwether Prize. Refreshments will be served.
