Seaweed Chronicles: A World at the Water's Edge by Susan Hand Shetterly
From 5.30 pm until 6.30 pm
We conclude our yearlong exploration of Maine authors with Susan Hand Shetterly's poetic non-fiction work, Seaweed Chronicles. Shetterly may be the last Maine author in our Maine 201 series, but we're pretty sure she won't be the last one we read going forward. Come wrap up an incredible year of reading Maine authors.
The book club discussion is on Monday, January 24 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm on Zoom. All readers welcome!
Seaweed Chronicles: A World at the Water’s Edge by Susan Hand Shetterly
Shetterly takes readers deep into the world of this essential organism by providing an immersive, often poetic look at life on the rugged shores of her beloved Gulf of Maine, where the growth and harvesting of seaweed is becoming a major industry. While examining the life cycle of seaweed and its place in the environment, she tells the stories of the men and women who farm and harvest it—and who are fighting to protect this critical species against forces both natural and man-made.
