  • : Books - Mar 15 thru Jun 15 - Farmington - Exhibit: To Sail Beyond the Sunset: The Influence of the Odyssey - UMF Mantor Library - Upcoming Franklin County Maine Events
    The Shiretown Bookers are proud to announce their Spring exhibition, "To Sail Beyond the Sunset: The Influence of the Odyssey," on display at the Bookers' gallery area in UMF's Mantor Library at 116 South Street in Farmington. The Odyssey of Homer, taken together with the Iliad, constitutes the oldest surviving work of Western Literature. The story of Odysseus's homeward wanderings has stirred the adventurous imagination for nearly 3000 years and has served as inspiration for many of our great poems, tales, novels, and movies. Ulysses, by James Joyce, which follows the plot of the Odyssey through a day in Dublin in 1904, is widely acclaimed as the greatest novel of the twentieth century. Odysseus has wandered into other works as well. He appears in Dante, in Shakespeare, in Katzanzakis, in Robert Graves and Zachery Mason, and in the post-modern works of John Barth. Penelope has figured in a literature of her own, inspiring strong feminist work by Atwood, Leclerc, and La Spina. The exhibit is on display from Mar. 15 through June 15.
  • : Books - Apr 09 - Farmington - Making Books: Stories from a Career in Book Design - UMF Kalikow Education Center - Upcoming Franklin County Maine Events
    Angela Werner and Michael Hohne, book designers, collectors, and members of the Shiretown Bookers, will speak on Making Books: Stories from a Career in Book Design in the lounge of the Theodora J. Kalikow Education Center at the University of Maine at Farmington. From hand-holding, self-published, first-time authors to projects for the Library of Congress and the British Library, fine art photography to business books, and a multitude of books about books, they've enjoyed a wide-ranging career. Lawrence of Arabia, Pope John Paul II, Hemingway, Boswell, and some interesting unknowns will appear, as will the difference between tracking and kerning. Werner and Hohne have been designing books since before the computer revolution, more than 180 over the last 25 years, although their interest in language and communications, and their love of books in general, go back to childhood. This talk will be the third of the 2016-17 series hosted by the Shiretown Bookers (the community friends of Mantor Library). The Kalikow Center is at the corner of Lincoln Street and High Street in Farmington. Free and open to the public. Event on Sunday, Apr. 9 at 2:30 p.m.
