On Saturday, December 8 from 10am – noon Katy Perry and Sam Webber will be at the Harlow signing copies of their latest project, a book called Reflections and Recollections. The book costs $20 and proceeds go to support the Hallowell food bank. This is just one of many events planned for December 8th for Christmas in Olde Hallowell! For details visit hallowell.org.
Reflections and Recollections is a collection of pieces which capture the flavor of this little Kennebec River City from its settlement in 1762 to the present day. The articles run the gamut from historic information to amusing anecdotes to poignant family memories. They provide a snapshot of events both big and small for the benefit of present-day readers and for the ages. Submitted by both amateur and professional writers, many articles were originally printed in a series run by the Capital Weekly and later by the Kennebec Journal to commemorate Hallowell’s 250th birthday. There is a piece by Deb Fahy on the importance of volunteers to the success of the Harlow Gallery and the KVAA.
