Author Jeri Theriault: Self Portrait as Homestead

Time: to
Location: Bangor Public Library

Jeri will give an overview of Franco-American voices, reading excerpts from such works as David Vermette’s A Distinct Alien Race, Kerri Arsenault’s Mill Town, and Rhea Côté Robbins’s Wednesday’s Child.

The heart of her presentation will focus on her new book, a “self-portrait” created from memories as well as the likenesses and stories (read and imagined) of close ancestors, grandmother, mother, father, and others.

A visual presentation may accompany this reading.
