Please join us at our Portland location on Saturday, July 13th at 11AM to meet author Agnes Bushell, who will be signing copies of her newest novel "The House on Perry Street." This is an epic novel about a house in Greenwich Village which has been the home of a single family since its construction in the 1870’s and it follows the intertwining stories of its inhabitents through the 1970's. "The House on Perry Street" would make an excellent addition to any summer reading list, so make sure you stop by and get a signed copy!
Agnes Bushell was born in Queens, New York, in 1949. She attended the University of Chicago, and moved to Maine in 1970 with her husband, where, with the exception of several year-long interruptions, she has lived ever since. Her two children were born and raised in Portland; she has two Californian grandsons. Besides writing novels, Bushell has also written book reviews and essays for local Maine magazines and newspapers. She was involved in organizing the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance and the Many Rivers School, and was one of the editors of "Balancing Act, an Anthology of Maine Women Poets." For over twenty years she taught literature and writing at the Maine College of Art, where she is Professor Emerita in Liberal Arts.
