Author Announcement: Betsy Connor Bowen

Winner of the 2010 Maine Literary Award, Betsy Connor Bowen is the author of Spring Bear, her first novella.

Betsy Connor Bowen lives and writes in central Maine. “A life journey of many decades led me to a place in my imagination named Soper’s Mills, where the people who live there are not ‘fast food.’ They are your mother’s meatloaf – baked in a woodstove, with gravy like nobody else makes, garden vegetables – you can’t get it anywhere else. Not in a million years. I love these people and I love writing about them. I love to tell about the choices they make, their fragile souls diminished by the world sometimes, enlarged at others; about their unnoticed moments of grace. They are all heroes to me.”
