Author to visit Scarborough library

Join author Eleanor Morse at Scarborough Public Library 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept.18 for a conversation about her novel, “White Dog Fell From the Sky.”

In addition to being a staff pick at the library, Morse’s book has received enthusiastic reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and O-The Oprah Magazine – to name a few. “White Dog Fell From the Sky” paints a portrait of Botswana and of three people whose intertwined lives are at once tragic and extraordinary.

Morse is a graduate of Swarthmore College and earned her master’s of fine arts in creative writing from Vermont College. She spent a number of years living in Botswana in the 1970s and taught adult education programs. She works as an adjunct faculty member with Spalding University’s MFA Writing program in Louisville, Ky. She lives on Peaks Island. The program is free and open to the public. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
