Two Maine authors will talk about and sign their books Saturday, July 7 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Beyond the Sea Gallery-Café, 74 Main St. Matt Curry, author of “A Maine Outdoorsman: A Mixed Bag of 48 Short Stories,” published by Maine Authors Publishing; and John Ford, Sr., author of “Suddenly, the Cider Didn’t Taste so Good,” published by Islandport Press, will speak about their work and adventures in the Maine woods.

Curry knows better than anyone how to use the resources of the Maine woods. He is skilled at hunting and fishing, from training hounds to enduring the best and worst weather conditions. He regales his reader with entertaining tales about his work as a rabbit hunting guide, and his experiences fishing and living in Maine. Curry is a former columnist for the Republican Journal and the Waldo Independent. He has been published nationally in magazines such as Full Cry, Small Pack Option, Hounds & Hunting, American Beagler, Better Beagling and The Rabbit Hunter.

Ford Sr. is a retired game warden whose stories vary from heartwarming to serious. From rescuing wild animals to arresting hunters violating the law, his memoirs offer a distinctive look at the Maine deep woods.
