Author, professor, Ruth Moore aficionado and modest basketball player Sanford Phippen  once again amused crowds tonight with his own dry wit and reminiscences. We listened to memories of playing basketball in many down east Maine high schools, the attention paid to sports "stars" and discussions with Ruth Moore about her work. Phippen, who has taught English (and the work of Moore) at both the high school and college level in Maine was particularly well suited to discuss Ruth Moore's The Walk Down Main Street.
