Jean Edwards-Author of Quiltmaster at the Jesup Memorial Library

Bar Harbor -

BAR HARBOR, Maine — Jean Edwards will be reading from her latest novel Quiltmaster at 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at the Jesup Memorial Library in Bar Harbor.

Ms. Edwards, a Maine native and a child of the Great Depression, remembers well the disastrous fire of 1947 when many of the beautiful Bar Harbor mansions were lost. The lasting impression of that sad October prompted her to write this novel, which revives the elegance of the era before that fire.

The will also be a reading by Brenda Lee Torrey from Ms. Edwards poetry book Shore Song. The poems describe Maine’s waterways and those who live and work there.

Copies of Ms. Edwards work will be available for sale and signing. For more information, call 288-4245 or visit www.jesup.lib.me.us.
