Rev. Mel Mal­ton, min­is­ter of Christ Church, Berwick and Mor­den and St. Mary’s in Auburn is also an au­thor. Who knew? She spoke at the cof­fee and con­ver­sa­tion ses­sion at the Berwick Li­brary on Sept. 28. It was very in­for­ma­tive. She spoke about some meth­ods you could use to get started on writ­ing a book and shared her past en­deav­ours and had sev­eral of her books with her.
