The Camden Opera House will reopen on Sunday, January 17, with a series of performances streamed live from the opera house stage to Facebook free of charge. No audience will be allowed in-person.

First in the series, The Literary Salon will present an hour-long reading and talk by Paul Doiron at 2 p.m. The bestselling author of the Mike Bowditch series of crime thrillers, Doiron will read from his latest, “One Last Lie,” and may offer a preview of his next novel, due this summer.

Edgar Award nominee Doiron is editor emeritus of Down East magazine, former chair of the Maine Humanities Council and a Registered Maine Guide.

The reading benefits One Less Worry in Rockland, which provides personal care necessities including pads, tampons, toilet paper and toothpaste to those in need. Doiron and the opera house encourage the public to learn more and donate by visiting onelessworry.me.

The SoundCheck series returns at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, January 22, with Darlin’ Corey, the roots duo Matt Shipman and Erica Brown.

Opera House Facebook livestreams require no link or reservation. Visit camdenoperahouse.com for the full winter schedule and for more information.
