Rediscovering Community: Maine’s Rural Heritage as a Path to the Future

Qualities of rural culture that helped build our nation are vanishing, but are still evident in places like northern Maine. There is value in remembering our roots as a source of permanence and direction in the midst of change.

Kathryn Olmstead served 25 years on the journalism faculty of the University of Maine in Orono, the last six as associate dean in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. She published Echoes magazine, a quarterly journal of rural culture based in Caribou, Maine, from 1988 to 2017, and wrote a biweekly column for the Bangor Daily News. She will present “Rediscovering Community: Maine’s Rural Heritage as a Path to the Future” on Friday, Oct. 26.

The event begins with the Dean’s Reception at 4:00 p.m. in the Hudson Museum. The lecture follows at 5 p.m. in the Bodwell Lounge.

The event is free and open to the public. Contact Tonya Corriveau at 207.581.1954 or tonya.corriveau@maine.edu for more information.
