Happy almost, October!  And welcome back to anther recreationally sound,
intellectually important, politically benevolent, and curiosity fulfilling
edition of the High Demand Hold Digest!

 

As a plug to an author that will be visiting Gray in October, retired
Portland Police Detective Bruce Robert Coffin just released his first novel,
"Among the Shadows: a Detective Byron Mystery".  He received a great
write-up in last week's Maine Sunday Telegram and, to the best of my
recollection, is first local author with a premiere book has appeared on
this list since I started compiling it.  And with 23 people already lined up
for it, it is definitely worth consideration.

 

And for those nostalgia minded folks, the top ten movies and books from
1-year ago are included at the end of the list.

 

So thanks, cheers, and happy Friday!

 

Josh
