Two Maines- Local Storytelling with Crash Barry & John McDonald
Join us Wednesday May 18th as local Portland authors Crash Barry and John McDonald present an evening of their blunt, charming and ever so comical local tales from their most recent publications.
John McDonald has been telling stories around the state for years, and his weekly column is published in many Maine newspapers. John is also the founder of the Maine Storyteller Festival and his talk show can be heard each weekend on WGAN in Portland. John will read excerpts from his book "A Moose and a Lobster Walk into a bar".
Crash Barry worked for a decade as a print and radio reporter in Portland, Maine, specializing in his own style of undercover journalism. He stayed in homeless shelters and flophouses, cleaned nasty apartments and restaurants, infiltrated religious cults and hate groups, to provide detailed reports from a unique perspective. A former media critic, talk show producer and guidebook author, Crash Barry also labored as a janitor, bartender and bouncer. Crash will be reading from his freshly published novel "Sex, Drugs and Blueberries".
