The ride of her life, Author Talk with Elizabeth Letts, RESCHEDULED to Dec. 5

Author Elizabeth Letts will join us, via Zoom, to talk about her book, “The ride of her life : the true story of a woman, her horse, and their last-chance journey across America.”  This is of local interest, as the main character, Annie Wilkins, was from Minot, Maine.  In 1954, Annie was 63, a farmer, who was down on her luck.  She had lost her farm to foreclosure and her doctor had given her two years to live.  Instead of taking the spot she was offered in the county charity home, she decided to try to fulfill a lifelong dream to see the Pacific Ocean — by traveling there on horseback!  Annie’s journey took her through small towns and big cities and took her nearly two years,  In her research for the book, which also took about two years, author Elizabeth Letts visited local libraries and historical societies in the towns Annie passed through.  She will join us, via Zoom, to share her journey in researching and writing this book.
