Author Talk and Book Signing: Ann Rutherfurd Austin “The Bar Harbor Formation”

August 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A privileged childhood among the dying embers of the Gilded Age is not the best preparation for a young woman coming of age at the second half of the twentieth century. The world Katie Bowman Morse has been trained for-the world of Emily Post, dinner parties, and marriage as a career-is rapidly changing. Soon she will have to find her footing at a time of massive cultural shifts: the Viet Nam War, the civil rights movement, hippies, feminists, and, perhaps most difficult of all, the relaxation of the norms her family held dear. In The Bar Harbor Formation, Ann Rutherfurd Austin illuminates the challenges Katie faces as she deals with her own personal tragedies amid a vanishing way of life.
