6.29.23 Governor Janet Mills and Author Shannon A. Mullen

Hello friends,

I wanted to take a moment this week to mention that we will be hosting Governor Mills and author Shannon Mullen here at Skidompha on Sunday evening, July 9th at 6:30pm, to talk about Mullen’s book, In Other Words, Leadership.

“In Other Words, Leadership tells the uplifting true story of an extraordinary connection between Maine’s current Governor Janet Mills and Ashirah Knapp, a young mother and homesteader who sent the governor weekly handwritten letters of support through the first pandemic year. In this debut book by public radio journalist Shannon A. Mullen — drawn from Ashirah’s letters and excerpts from the governor’s personal journals — you’ll come to know two very different women who forged an unexpected bond that helped them brave the COVID crisis.” https://steerforth.com/product/in-other-words-leadership-9781586423681/

This event will be held in our Porter Room and attendance will be strictly limited to 80 people, per the room’s maximum capacity. We will open our Elm Street entrance at 5:30 to begin seating. Admission bracelets will be handed out at the door. The event is free, but we do encourage donations either to our Food Pantry or to the Library proper.

Be well,
Matthew Graff
Executive Director
