Local Author Talk with Patricia Hanlon

Sawyer Free Library is hosting local author PATRICIA HANLON on Wednesday, June 23 from 7-8:30m for a virtual book talk about her recently published book “Swimming to the Top of the Tide.”

REGISTER HERE to receive Zoom Link.

“The Great Marsh is the largest continuous stretch of salt marsh in New England, extending from Cape Ann to New Hampshire. Patricia Hanlon and her husband built their home and raised their children alongside it. But it’s not until the children are grown that they begin to swim the tidal estuary daily. Immersing herself, she experiences, with all her senses in all seasons, the vigor of a place where the two ecosystems of fresh and salt water mix, merge, and create new life. Noting the disruptions caused by human intervention, she bears witness to the vitality of the watersheds, their essential role in the natural world, and the responsibility of those who love them to contribute to their sustainability.” -Bellevue Literary Press
