Upcoming Lectures

Monday, May 9, 2022 @ 7PM

Colin Woodard, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR & PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST

Author of The Lobster Coast Rebels, Rusticators, and the Struggle for a Forgotten Frontier

The past, present and future of coastal Maine:  Colin Woodard shares the backstory of Maine, a harrowing and little understood saga of war and betrayal, of clashing empires and ethnic cleansing, of civil war and colonial occupation by Massachusetts of what had been a separate province. These events shaped Mainers as a people and explain some of the culture’s most impressive virtues and most frustrating faults, as well as the still fraught relationship between this land’s real natives and the rest of us whose families came “from away” at some point in the past four hundred years.
