Location: Portland Public Main Library
David and Carl Little will sit down and discuss their new book Art of Acadia with bob Keyes, Art Critic at the Portland Press Herald.
About the book:
The Mount Desert Island and Acadia region of Maine has been the subject of artists for hundreds of years and many of America’s most celebrated painters have been inspired here. From Thomas Cole to Richard Estes, painters have captured the exquisite beauty of the island on canvas. Their work has drawn visitors year after year and helped inspire the preservation of its extraordinary natural beauty through the creation of Acadia National Park. This view of the region through the works of talented artists grants a new perspective to our collective appreciation of this unique convergence of land and sea.
Portland Public Library’s Literary Lunch series is held monthly and features authors from New England in conversation about new works. Authors are interviewed by literary friends, colleagues or critics.
