Literary Lunch with Katy Kelleher and Greta Rybus

Wednesday, September 27 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: Main Library
Audience: Adults

Join us for a conversation about Handcrafted Maine: Art, Life, Harvest & Home, a new book by Katy Kelleher and photographer Greta Rybus.  The program will be held at noon in the Rines Auditorium.

About the book
Amid the sublime beauty of Maine—its primordial forests, remote lakes, rugged mountains, and craggy coastline blooms a handmade culture fed by heritage, self-sufficiency, and collaboration. Handcrafted Maine: Art, Life, Harvest & Home features lively profiles of more than twenty artists, artisans, and craftspeople—weavers and potters, a painter, an architect, a boatbuilder, a leatherworker, bakers, lobster-men, and more at work in the woods, towns, and cities of Maine, celebrating the triumphs and challenges of entrepreneurship and independence. Including more than 225 inspiring color photographs and intimate narrative portraits, Handcrafted Maine provides a window into the inner lives of creatives and brings to life the powerful environment and spirited character that nurture the unbridled ingenuity and common-sense approach to craft and life found Down East.
