Gorham’s BML Hosts Maine Author Josh Gauthier

Join us to hear author Josh Gauthier! Josh is a Maine-based writer and playwright focusing primarily on speculative fiction. He earned an MFA in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast Program where he concentrated on popular fiction. During the day, Josh works as a librarian. In his free time, he can be found reading, watching movies, gaming, and drinking too much coffee in order to sustain his dual caffeine-writing habit.

More about Land of Outcasts: A world-weary gunslinger. A snarky battle unicorn. A new job at the edge of the known world. What could go wrong? Eli and his battle-unicorn partner, Sasha, hope to be forgotten in the expansive swampland known as The Green. When a woman offers them a job, it seems like the perfect payday to tide them over. However, even if they survive The Green, completing their job and finding a way to go home will be no easy task. What’s a pair of mercenaries to do when faced with a dire situation and no good choices? Something stupid, probably.
