Half of Every Couple

$12

with Diane O'Brien

Calendar Nov 19, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Join Maine author, Diane O'Brien as she talks about her book, Half of Every Couple, which takes the reader through the year following the death of her husband, ending their nearly fifty year marriage. Weekly entries follow her journey of grief from the numbness of the first weeks to a gradual awakening to the possibilities that lay ahead. With a 150 year old farmhouse and barn, a flock of laying hens, a dog and six grandchildren within a mile or two there are few quiet moments. The paradox of grieving amidst the renewal of life all around her is a central theme of Half of Every Couple. That this unfolds in the context of a coastal Maine town, where everyone knows someone has died when the dooryard’s full of cars, makes it all the more interesting.

What happened to folks who deserted the "bucket brigade" at a fire? Who is the little girl at Dr. Page's? Did barber's only give a shave and haircut? Come along on this lantern lit walking tour and discover the answers. Wearing her trademark red cloak with period dress from the 1800's and combining well-researched facts with her unique story-telling style, The Lady in the Red Cloak regularly leads walking tours in Maine communities.
