New Hope Midcoast Hosts Discussion Project in April

March 11, 2022

New Hope Midcoast, Midcoast Maine’s only Domestic Violence Resource Center, invites the public to join them as they host their first Discussion Project with the Maine Humanities Council. This two-part event will be held Wednesdays, April 20 and 27 from 6-7:30 p.m. via Zoom and will focus on Roxanne Gay’s book, Hunger, a “… deeply moving exploration of the ways in which trauma, stories, desire, language and metaphor shape our experiences and construct our reality” (New York Times). Poet, blogger, watercolorist and photographer, Carol Willette Bachofner, will facilitate the discussions. Carol is the author of seven books of poetry. Her poems have appeared in several journals, as well as in the anthology, Dawnland Voices, an Anthology of Writings from Indigenous New England (2014). She was a finalist in the Maine Literary Awards for 2011, won the Maine Postmark Contest 2017, and served as Poet Laureate of Rockland Maine from 2012-2016.

New Hope Midcoast provides comprehensive support and resources to individuals affected by domestic abuse, dating violence and stalking. To join the discussion and to receive your book, email developmentdirector@newhopemidcoast.org or call (207) 691.5969.
