Three author announcements: Donn Fendler, Lynn Plourde and Ben Bishop

Donn Fendler, seasonally of Newport, lived his own survival story in 1939 when he was lost as a twelve-year-old boy for nine days in the wilderness around Katahdin. His saga was first told in the classic Lost on a Mountain in Maine and most recently in the graphic novel Lost Trail: Nine Days Alone in the Wilderness. Donn makes frequent visits to schools and libraries sharing his story.

Lynn Plourde (www.lynnplourde.com) of Winthrop is the author of 27 children’s books including her most recent Dino Pets Go to School and Only Cows Allowed, and co-author of Lost Trail with Donn Fendler. She lives in Winthrop with her husband.

Ben Bishop (www.bishart.net) is a graphic novelist, toy designer, and illustrator who lives in Old Orchard. He illustrated Donn Fendler’s graphic novel Lost Trail. He also self-published Nathan the Caveman and is working on his next project, The Stand-In, a Jim Kruger comic.
