We are thrilled to welcome Maine Author, Didi Cooper and Illustrator/Artist, Holly Ross, to present their new book  Before You Were Ours to the Pasco Lecture Series Sunday, September 29, 2019 at 2:00 pm.   Copies of the book will be for sale and signing.

Didi Cooper is an author living her best life on the coast of Maine. In love with the town of Kennebunkport, she brings the Earth magic she discovers to everything she does.  Didi stumbled unexpectedly into writing both women’s fiction and children’s books at the age of 48. Trained as a teacher and school administrator, Didi earned her doctorate in education in 2016. After 25 years in the field of education, she found herself yearning for a creative outlet; a hobby. She needed a departure from her type A, workaholic personality. She found herself yearning for the coast of Maine, where life was quieter, simpler, and perfectly magical.

Holly Ross is an artist living in Kennebunkport, Maine. She graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and has lived in Maine with her husband and two kids since 1993. She taught photography at Sanford High School and graphic design and drawing at Heartwood College of Art and River Tree Cen

The Pasco Lecture Series is supported by the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, Kennebunk Savings Bank, and the Graves Library Snack Team.
