Have you ever wondered about the history of coastal Maine? How war, betrayal, ethnic cleansing, and colonial occupation by Massachusetts shaped Mainers as a people? Then join New York Times bestselling author, historian, and journalist Colin Woodard at the Main Library location of the South Portland Public Library on Wednesday, September 28th at 6:30pm, as he discusses his new book, The Lobster Coast: The past, present, and future of coastal Maine.

South Portland’s Nonesuch Books will be on hand with copies of Colin Woodard books, including American Nations, American Character, The Lobster Coast, The Republic of Pirates, Ocean’s End and Union: The Struggle to Forge the Story of United States Nationhood, available for sale.
