PRESQUE ISLE Presque Isle resident Anthony Dolan Scott will be hosting a reading and book signing of his new poetry book, 'The Year Things Came Apart' (Maine Authors Publishing, 2016), at Mark & Emily Turner Memorial Library in Presque Isle on March 10 at 6 p.m.

'The Year Things Came Apart' tells the story of the author moving to Aroostook County as a fundamentalist pastor, confident in his divine destiny. But as his 'divine destiny' unfolds, life sends a series of troubles the housing bubble bursts; many of the faithful squabble, turn on him and leave; his marriage becomes strained as the pressure mounts; his own father, after more than 40 years of marriage, leaves his mother for another woman. At the climax, his father dies unrepentant, leaving Scott with a decision: What to do with a faith too rigid to heal his grief?
