Freeport Community Library – Meet the Author: Charlene D’Avanzo

Talk with Yarmouth “Cli-fi” writer Charlene D’Avanzo

Join us on Wednesday, November 20 at Freeport Community Library for an Author Talk with Charlene D’Avanzo. Charlene is a retired marine ecologist and award-winning environmental educator and author who turned to writing mysteries in the emerging “cli-fi” genre to help people better understand climate change in the context of a fast-paced, exciting story. Her Mara Tusconi Maine Oceanographer series features a female oceanographer turned sleuth, who uses a sea kayak and scientific knowledge to solve crime. She was inspired to start the series when a famous scientist described tactics climate change deniers used to harass him. Charlene, who lives in Yarmouth, Maine, is an avid sea kayaker and weaves her misadventures on the water into her stories.

The Talk will run 6:30-7:30PM, and is free and open to the public. Books will be available to interested parties. For questions or directions to the library, call 865-3307 or visit
