On Tuesday, Oct. 17, Joseph Loughlin, Deputy Chief of the Portland Police Department and co-author of the best-selling book "Finding Amy: A True Story of Murder in Maine," will discuss the book's fascinating, firsthand account of the investigation into the murder of Amy St. Laurent, a murder that shocked southern Maine in the fall of 2001. Diane Jenkins, Amy's mother, will also share her thoughts and experiences during the talk.

Deputy Chief Loughlin will provide an in-depth case overview, discuss the book and the writing process, and share his passion for the job and the investigation. Following the lecture, all guests are invited for refreshments and the opportunity to meet the author for a book-signing. Books will be available for purchase.
