Jesup Library Online Author Talk
September 16 @ 7:00 pm
The Jesup Memorial Library is hosting an online talk by Bill and Kathy Kenny, authors of “Historic Taverns and Tea Rooms in Maine,” on Thursday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m.
Holding an integral place in Maine’s community, the story of its early taverns and tea rooms is an important account of commerce and political and social life. From famed Revolutionary Wary incidents to Civil War generals, stagecoaches and the story of rum, the history of Maine’s early taverns is captivating. They played a large role in the national tea movement, the temperance and suffragette movements and the promotion of women’s independence, and they also symbolized Maine’s culture and sophistication. Join Kathy and Bill Kenny as they unveil the stories, characters and history of these establishments over the past four centuries.
