Author Martha Tod Dudman at Left Bank Books

May 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

WHEN: Tuesday, May 21 at 6:30 pm

WHERE: Left Bank Books

Please join us as we welcome Martha to celebrate her new Ellsworth, Maine-based thriller, Sunrise and the Real World, a captivating coming-of-age story that explores temptation, morality, and mental health. Published last November by Islandport Press, Sunrise features a recent college graduate who works at a residential treatment center for troubled teens. She quickly finds herself absorbed into a landscape of angry and abused teenagers, illicit romance, and danger. Years later, she’s forced to confront the person she was, the choices she made, and the bitter ghosts that haunt her.

Martha is the author of four previous books including Augusta, Gone, which was adapted into an award-winning Lifetime production. She is a director of the Maine Humanities Council and a selectman for the Town of Mount Desert. Over the years she’s served on many boards including the Maine Association of Broadcasters, Bangor Rotary Club, and the Northeast Harbor Library.

Dudman has written a thriller to rank with the best writers of the genre. . .she has found the perfect setting: a juvenile home where no one can tell whether an inmate (or resident) is a sad, neglected child, or a killer. . . .The book kept me awake for nights.
— Frances Fitzgerald, Pulitzer Prize-winning author
