MAINELY BOOKS: Wilderness Woman

with Steve Thornley


 We’re launching a new program that will introduce you to and explore the vast and varied (like our landscape) body of literature about Maine by Maine authors…or about Maine by non-Maine authors…or non-Maine topics by Maine authors. Our scope will be wide-ranging: we’ll read and discuss old and new works of both fiction and non-fiction by famous, popular, and new authors. It’ll be an eclectic assortment of interesting and provocative readings that will stimulate your “little gray cells” and generate lively conversation. Our first two books were written by women who married Maine Game Wardens and chronicled their lives in the North Woods in the 1920s and 1930s.

This course will meet on Monday mornings, via Zoom from 10:00AM to 11:30AM on the following dates:

 October 31 st : My Life in the Maine Woods by Annette Jackson

 November 14 th : Nine Mile Bridge – Three Years in the Maine Woods by Helen Hamlin

Steve is an artist, historian, teacher, and lifelong learner and lives in Wells with his wife, Nancy.
