  • Exploring the Blizzard of 1952 with Cathie Pelletier

    Cathie Pelletier

    Maine author Cathie Pelletier will share the breathtaking story of the 1952 snowstorm that gripped New England. In her new book, Northeaster: A Story of Courage and Survival in the Blizzard of 1952, working from a series of intensive interviews, she weaves together the stories of several families in a stranded lumber camp as well as individuals throughout the Midcoast and beyond. One of the stories detailed in the book is that of Harland Davis, a third generation lobsterman in Cushing who was washed overboard during the storm; Harland’s son, Bill Wilson, will join us for the event. Copies of Northeaster will be available for signing and purchase after the reading.
    Cathie Pelletier was born in Northern Maine and is the author of sixteen books, including The Funeral Makers (a New York Times Notable Book), The Weight of Winter (winner of the New England Book Award) and Running the Bulls (winner of the Paterson Prize for Fiction). As K. C. McKinnon, she has written two novels, both of which became television films. After years of living in Nashville, Tennessee Toronto, Canada and Eastman, Quebec, she has returned to Allagash, Maine and the family homestead where she was born.
