LINDA GREENLAW

MONDAY, APRIL 21; 7 PM

Famed swordfisherman and bestselling author LINDA GREENLAW will introduce her memoir, Lifesaving Lessons: Notes from an Accidental Mother. While she has always wanted to be a mother, Linda never dreamed she’d gain that title as mother of a teenager. When the residents of Isle Au Haut, Maine realized that a member of their community, fifteen-year-old Mariah, fled her uncle’s house for refuge, it became apparent that he was a sexual and emotional predator who had been taking advantage of her for many years. Linda stepped in and brought Mariah into her home and they began the slow journey of getting to know and trust each other. It was not easy! Eventually, they overcame their own stubborn independence in order to forge the unlikely family that they both so desperately wanted and needed.

Linda’s many books include The Hungry Ocean, The Maine Summer’s Cookbook, The Lobster Chronicles, All Fisherman Are Liars, and Seaworthy.
