About The Event
Join us for a talk given by the director of the Maine State Museum that tells the story of Maine. The museum's new, groundbreaking book, A Story of Maine in 112 Objects, charts the history of Maine through the museum's collection with 112 essays and hundreds of photographs. Artifacts range from a walrus skull to a woman’s World War II welding outfit. Included as well is the fascinating story of the museum itself, founded in 1836 and dismantled and reborn no fewer than seven times! Copies of the book will be available for sale.
