Author Talk – Hermit: The Mysterious Life of Jim Whyte

Maine author Jeffrey Ryan will be sharing stories from his popular book about a man from away, who left an indelible mark on the town of Monson, Maine. Jim Whyte left Monson for the last time in the 1930s, yet nearly a century later, his story is vibrant in local lore.

Ryan will share how he stumbled on the story, how it continued to call on him to write it, and how some of the elements he added to his book based on conjecture actually turned out to be true. Based on the true story, “Hermit” has gained an enthusiastic following among those who enjoy the north woods, family traditions that span generations, the joys of casting a fly rod on a secluded pond, small town quirks, and solving a local mystery.

He will have copies of all of his books available for purchase and signing.
