Remembering the Kennebunks ~ Saturday Feature

If you're up in Kennebunk, Maine today stop by the Brick Store Museum on Main Street. Remembering the Kennebunks: A Book Signing with Kathy Ostrander will take place from 11AM to 1PM. I personally grew up in the small town of Kennebunk with it's gorgeous beaches with wonderful summer breezes. Kennebunk Town Historian and author Kathy Ostrander reveals another side of Kennebunk - its rich and varied past. Her book share the stories such as the mysterious creature once said to live near the mouth of the Kennebunk River, treasures hidden in fireplaces and under floorboards and the scandalous murder trial of 1866, during which the wife of deceased doctor, drunk and temperance supporter Charles Swett was imprisoned on the testimony of her own daughter. Through these tales and serious sketches, Kathy creatively weaves an interesting portrait of the area.

Kathy is a very dear friend and talented artist as well as a writer. This is her second book, the first book was titled Kennebunk, Maine.

Come on by the Brick Store Museum and meet the author and have her sign your personal copy of her book. While you are at the Brick Store you might also enjoy the Museum's exhibitions.
