The Library is proud to welcome author Kerri Arsenault as she presents her new book “Mill Town: Reckoning With What Remains”.
Kerri will be joined in conversation with Lisa Huber, PhD, discussing Maine’s nickname “Vacationland” and how that myth silences communities living in the periphery of tourism.
The event will be held on the library lawn (rain date Sunday 9/6). Bring a picnic and a blanket. Beverages provided by Kerri and the Library.
