Author Event with Maryann Proper Barto

Sunday, April 23, 2:00 pm

Bookcover of "A Story from a Basket Maker's Daughter: The Hill

Maryann Barto grew up in West Taghkanic Proper family with her basket-making mother, which gave her the inspiration to write A Story from a Basket Maker’s Daughter: The Hill.  Her family’s stories have been living history and enhanced her love for researching forgotten history to include in her writing. Maryann will read from and discuss her new novel, set in a rustic village known as The Hill, whose members have depended upon one another for survival, fearing the consequences of their secrets and the changes around them.

Special Viewing and Book Signing – A short film Basket Maker (1973) featuring Elizabeth Proper will be shown, and an array of Taghkanic baskets will be on view. Following the presentation, attendees can meet author Maryann Barto and purchase a signed copy of her book.
