Author talk-Jane Goodrich-The House At Lobster Cove

October 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The House At Lobster Cove by Jane Goodrich

This book talk will take place just a few days after the 164th anniversary of Father John Bapst being driven out of Ellsworth on a rail, October 14, 2018. A vivid portrayal of this event takes place early in the novel and underscores George Nixon Black’s interactions with the world around him for the rest of his life.  Part of the research for this book was conducted at the Bangor Public Library the architect of which, Peabody and Stearns, also designed Kragsyde, the house at Lobster Cove. The author, Jane Goodrich, and her husband recreated this magnificent house on Swan’s Island.

Jane will present a slide show of historic images related to the book, concentrating on people and events related to the Ellsworth and Bangor areas.  Books will be available for purchase.

Black’s life was exceptional for his time. After a youth marred by violence and uncertainty, and a life of great privilege contrasted with the awareness of the danger his lifestyle placed him in, his happiness is remarkable and his secrecy understandable.

In The House at Lobster Cove, you will meet the elusive Boston bachelor who was a curious blend of humility and fierceness, and see behind the doors of Kragsyde, the house that sheltered and shaped him, and continued to tell his story long after both were gone.”
