Literary Lunch with Deborah Joy Corey and Genevieve Morgan

Wednesday, August 30 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: Main Library
Audience: Adults

Join us for a conversation between Deborah Joy Corey and fellow writer Genevieve Morgan.  They will discuss Corey’s new book, Settling Twice.  This promises to be an interesting and thought provoking conversation between two of Maine’s authors both published by Island Port Press.

About the book
In a revelation of memory and unflinching insight, prompted by the death of her parents, author Deborah Joy Corey probes the complex bonds between family, lovers, and neighbors that shaped her sense of identity: then, as a girl growing up in rural New Brunswick, and now as a wife and mother living on the coast of Maine. With astonishing skill and delicacy, she weaves a story of faith and transcendence, of loyalty and regret, and shows us how––despite the passage of time and a world fraught with disillusion––wonder prevails and love sustains.
