Author, Military Wife to Speak Wednesday at UMaine

Bangor Daily News columnist, author, military wife and mother of three Sarah Smiley will be at the University of Maine’s Foster Center for Student Innovation from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10, to discuss her life and her latest book, “Dinner with the Smileys.” The event is free and open to the public. Smiley has drawn national attention, including a CNN feature report, for inviting a noteworthy guest to dinner once a week as a solution to an empty place at the table while her husband is deployed. Among her guests have been representatives of Maine’s Congressional delegation, former governors and UMaine coaches and athletes. Lunch will be served. RSVP at or (207) 581-1454.
