Holly posted some fantastic news on Facebook!
I am thrilled to announce that Rick Hautala’s papers will be housed at the Maine State Library. Anastasia Varnalis-Weigle, Rick’s archivist and good friend, has catalogued 30 years of manuscripts, correspondence, promotional pieces and miscellaneous stuff into a history not only of a bestselling writer’s rise, fall, and rebirth, but a timeline of the changes in publishing. They will have a great home in a library devoted to Maine writers and Maine books. Rick loved Maine, and there is no better place for his papers.
