NORWAY Four local authors from Maine Authors Publishing of Rockland will be attending the Norway Arts Festival on July 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for book signings hosted by Books N Things.

The authors attending are Kelly Brooks-Bay of Orrington ('The Rainbow Pants'), Jean M. Flahive of South Portland ('Railroad to the Moon'), Kathy Eliscu of Westbrook ('Not Even Dark Chocolate Can Fix This Mess') and Anne B. Gass of Gray ('Voting Down the Rose').

'The Rainbow Pants' is an imaginative and vibrant children's book where the main character is filled with colorful feelings. Peter T. Peacock gets to answer the daily question, 'What will I wear today?' based on his emotions.

In the young adult book 'Railroad to the Moon,' runaway slave Elijah is trapped between new found freedom and a promise. He is led by hands both seen and unseen to a destiny of which he could only dream. Weaving historical realities into a work of fiction, this is a tale of friendship, loyalty, and a solemn promise.

Somewhere in Maine, a middle-aged woman is having a serious temper tantrum. 'In Not Even Dark Chocolate Can Fix This Mess,' 'Tink' Casawill is drowning in family and work demands, hormones, a fianc oblivious to another woman's flirtations and her doctor tells her to cut out caffeine. (WHAT?!?) While attempting to do a good deed, Tink's life spins out of control.

'Voting Down the Rose' is a lively account of Maine native Florence Brooks Whitehouse's efforts to win women voting rights in the decisive final years of the campaign, 19141920. Considered radical for picketing the White House, Florence helped win women suffrage against a backdrop of conservative views of women's roles, political intrigue, WWI and the 1918 influenza epidemic.

All signings will be held at Books N Things, which is located at 430 Main Street in Norway. The Norway Arts Festival is created for and by the community. All events are free and open to the public. For more information about the festival, visit
