Gulf of Maine Books opened on Maine Street in Brunswick in February, 1979. There was a bad ice storm that day, but we were open, serving waffles and orange juice to anyone who showed up. We will have a birthday party for the bookstore on Saturday, Feb. 25, at 3 PM. On Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th all books will be 30% off, to celebrate 3 decades of bookselling. At 3 PM on Saturday we will have a birthday party with food and drink, door prizes, and readings by Camden poet Kristen Lindquist (from her new book of poems Transportation) and Bath native and Theater Project alum Morgan Callan Rogers (reading from her new novel ruby red heart in a cold blue sea).
The event is free, open to the public, and we hope that you will come and help us celebrate 33 years of independent bookselling in Brunswick!
