Canceled–Author Talk and Book Signing: May Davidson “Whatever It Takes”

May 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

For nearly seventy years, May and Jim Davidson shared an unbreakable love of Maine and a relentless drive to do “whatever it takes” to achieve success and happiness. They fell in love as teenagers, built their first house using twenty dollars worth of lumber, and set about creating the life of their dreams. They soon learned that optimism alone wouldn’t sustain them. To make ends meet, they lobstered, fished, farmed sheep, started a lobster trap sawmill, and crisscrossed the country as long haul truckers. They eventually collapsed into debt and uncertainty while trying to raise thousands of chickens, so they regrouped and fought their way out again using the sea as their inspiration. May Davidson’s tale is a decades-long tapestry of adventure, brutally hard work, lightheartedness, and risk-taking that serves to  inspire any reader determined to live a rich life despite obstacles.
