Graves Library sets date for next Pasco lecture

Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library will host author Elizabeth Peavey for its Pasco Lecture Series on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 2 p.m.

Peavey is a Portland-based teacher, speaker and prizewinning author. Her one-woman show, “My Mother’s Clothes Are Not My Mother,” premiered in Portland in September of 2011 to sold-out houses and toured the state through 2012. It won the 2013 Maine Literary Award for Best Drama and has recently been revived.

Her June performance at the St. Lawrence Arts in Portland sold out, and she has two more scheduled for Sept. 13 and 14, one of which will include a post-production curtain talk titled, “Why Do We Keep Stuff?” She will discuss the same topic on the MPBN program “Maine Calling” on Sept. 10.

Her latest book, “Glorious Slow Going: Maine Stories of Art, Adventure and Friendship,” a collaboration with renowned landscape painter Marguerite Robichaux, was a finalist for the 2012 Maine Literary Awards. Peavey is also the author of “Outta My Way: An Odd Life Lived Loudly and of Maine & Me,” which was awarded the MLA for Best Maine-themed Book. Her writing has been featured in Down East Magazine since 1993, where she serves as contributing editor. She is a frequent guest lecturer and speaker at schools, libraries and associations across the state.

The Pasco Lecture Series is sponsored by Kennebunk Savings Bank and the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation. Light refreshments will be served.

The library is located at 18 Maine St., Kennebunkport. For more information on this lecture and the series in general, call 967-2778.
