On September 12, 2018, at 10:30, Kate Kennedy, author of End Over End and Maine’s Remarkable Women, will talk about and read from her latest book-in-progress, a memoir. The Mask is the story of Kate’s experiences with melanoma in her cheek—surgeries, skin grafts, radiation. It’s also a story about how fear works, how family heals, how the natural world, closely observed and recorded through the wheel of seasons, can inspire.
In addition to writing and editing, Kate taught writing at Portland High School in Portland, Maine, ran the Southern Maine Writing Project at the University of Southern Maine, and currently teaches occasional courses at the University of Maine.
