SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Georgetown residents Charles and Samuella Shain, editors of “The Maine Reader” and authors of “Growing Up in Maine” will visit from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, at Oz Books.
From early personal accounts to modern poetry, essays and fiction, “The Maine Reader” celebrates 400 years of works by all types of artists who have succumbed to the charms of Maine. The book spans works by natives and visitors, poets and lumberjacks, and also brings to light the journals of a foot soldier marching with Benedict Arnold, the diaries of a sea captain’s wife, and the memoirs of a 19th century Maine shipbuilder.
The Shains will be present to talk about their books and to autographed copies. Also present will be Carl Little, a Somesville resident who has written an introduction to “Paintings of Maine.”
