Gerritsen, Frederick in CMCA Sunday Salon

Sep 11, 2017
Artist Linden Frederick, right, and author Tess Gerritsen will discuss the inspiration and process behind "Takeout," their collaboration for the exhibition “Night Stories,” at CMCA.

Rockland — Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen of Camden will join Belfast artist Linden Frederick in conversation about their collaboration on the exhibition “Night Stories” in the next Sunday Salon, Sept. 17 from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 21 Winter St.

Gerritsen graduated from Stanford University and went on to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she was awarded her M.D. While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. Her books have been Top 3 bestsellers in the United States and top bestsellers abroad. She has won both the Nero Wolfe Award (for “Vanish”) and the Rita Award (for “The Surgeon”). Now retired from medicine, she writes full time and lives in Camden.

A native of Amsterdam, N.Y., Frederick has lived and worked in Belfast since 1989. The exhibition “Night Stories” and its accompanying book have been eight years in the making. Fifteen celebrated American fiction writers each agreed to select one painting especially created by Frederick as inspiration and then, over the following months, write a unique story inspired by it.

The Sunday Salon is included with CMCA admission, which is free for members.
