LACONIA — On Wednesday, August 7, Wayne From Maine will bring his uplifting and fun music to the Belknap Mill's Outdoor Concert Series in Rotary Park. The concert starts at 6:30 p.m.
The Wayne From Maine concert is sponsored by the Belknap County Early Childhood Council with further support from WEMJ. The concert is the next in a series that are being presented by the Belknap Mill this summer for the public. All concerts are free and held in Rotary Park on Beacon St. East next to the Belknap Mill.
During the concert the public is invited to view SPARK (Governor's Appointed Early Childhood Council) banners in the Belknap Mill's first-floor gallery. The banners tell the story of the importance of the first five years in a child's development.
Says Wayne about his musical background, "For nearly two decades I have been writing and performing family style music for the young and young at heart. I live in Kittery, Maine with my wife and two children. I have been a professional musician for over 20 years. After the birth of our first child, I started writing children's music. Writing music and playing for kids is the greatest. I perform at schools, preschools, libraries, festivals, and children's events from Maine to Maryland. I was invited for three years in a row to perform at the 'Little Ducklings Parade' in Boston. I have performed before thousands of kids but some of my favorite performances have been with smaller groups like the Perkins School for the Blind. It's always a thrill to have kids and adults singing along with me to my own music!"
In the event of rain, the concert will take place inside the Belknap Mill on the third floor function space.

MEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library, 91 Main Street welcomes bestselling author Julia Spencer-Fleming on Thursday, August 8 from 10:30 a.m.-noon.
Free and open to the public. No registration necessary. Light refreshments served.
Julia Spencer-Fleming is the winner of the Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, Dilys, Barry, Nero Wolfe, and Gumshoe Awards, and an Edgar and Romantic Times RC Award finalist. She was born at Plattsburgh Air Force Base, spending most of her childhood on the move as an army brat. She studied acting and history at Ithaca College, and received her J.D. from the University of Maine School of Law. She lives outside of Portland, Maine.
"When I started writing In the Bleak Midwinter, I was hard-pressed to imagine it ever getting published, let alone kicking off a series that now stands at seven books and counting," said Spencer-Fleming. "Every author gets asked, 'Does it get easier?' Oh, how I wish it did. But even on days when every word produced feels like it's been dug out of a lead mine, I find I'm still fascinated by Clare Fergusson, Russ Van Alstyne, and all the other inhabitants of their small Adirondack town. I used to say I'd finish the series by the fifth book; then by the sixth. I've given up predicting the future. Until the time ever comes when I have no more stories to tell about St. Alban's Episcopal Church and the Millers Kill Police Department, I'll keep writing. I hope you'll keep reading."
