#5) Library Event: Kerri Arsenault Discusses ‘Mill Town’
Author Kerri Arsenault will help us kick off Wilmington’s Earth Year with a discussion of her book Mill Town: Reckoning with What Remains at 7pm. Kerri Arsenault grew up in the rural working class town of Mexico, Maine. For over 100 years the community orbited around a paper mill that employs most townspeople, including three generations of Arsenault’s own family. Years after she moved away, Arsenault realized the price she paid for her seemingly secure childhood. The mill, while providing livelihoods for nearly everyone, also contributed to the destruction of the environment and the decline of the town’s economic, physical, and emotional health in a slow-moving catastrophe, earning the area the nickname “Cancer Valley.” Register HERE.
