Dinner with Doiron

Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance, the awesome non-profit writing center where I was once executive director, is celebrating its thirty-fifth anniversary on August 12 with the birthday party to end all birthday parties. For a mere $200 you can dine at one of Portland's best restaurants with the likes of Richard Russo, Richard Ford, Ann Beattie, Ann Hood, Lily King, Phillip Hoose, Joyce Maynard, Jennifer Finney Boylan, James Hayman, Betsy Sholl, or...me.

You're guaranteed to eat well. Last year, Bon Appetit named Portland "America's Foodiest Small Town." My dinner is at the Salt Exchange.
