Three authors reveal the stories behind
their unforgettable memoirs
ROCKPORT — Three of our region’s favorite authors have agreed to summon the same candor, wit and grit they used to write their unforgettable memoirs to speak with us about what it has been like to publish candid and personal material. And, yes, there are stories yet to tell.
Literary Cape Ann is thrilled to announce that Andre Dubus III, Benjamin Anastas and Steve Almond will appear in person at the Shalin Liu Performance Center at 2 p.m., Saturday, March 19. Their memoirs — “William Stoner and the Battle for the Inner Life” by Steve Almond; “Townie” by Andre Dubus III; and “Too Good to be True” by Benjamin Anastas — are powerful, unflinching and critically acclaimed. Sometimes witty, sometimes wrenching, the memoirs are thought-provoking page-turners worthy of a deep dive. Literary Cape Ann is proud to present this discussion to Cape Ann. Admission is free of charge, but seating is limited due to the ongoing pandemic. Those who wish to attend should bring masks and proof of vaccination, should these items still be required.
On the cusp of spring and the reopening of Cape Ann after extended and careful COVID precautions, Literary Cape Ann joins with readers and residents in welcoming this special literary treat. The authors’ books will be on sale after the discussion, and all three authors will sign books. Those interested are invited to visit LCA’s Facebook page to view a recording of the event.
Literary Cape Ann extends a very special thank you to the authors for their generosity, to Shalin Liu Performance Center for offering its beautiful space, to The Bookstore of Gloucester for helping to promote the event and selling the authors’ books, and to Literary Cape Ann’s longtime sponsors: SUN Engineering in Danvers, Bach Builders in Gloucester and the Institution for Savings. Since the closing of Toad Hall independent bookstore in Rockport, Literary Cape Ann has continued to provide information and events that support and reinforce the value and importance of the literary arts.

Domaine Villargeau les Abeilles Sauvignon Blanc, Upper Loire, Coteaux du Gennois 2019, Alc. 13.5%, Varietals: Sauvignon Blanc, Tasting: A rich, luscious style of wine, with dense citrus and pineapple flavors, this is flooded by sunshine and generous fruitiness.

Salomon Undhof Troken (dry) Riesling, Kremstal, Austria 2019, Alc. 13.5%
Varietals: Riesling Tasting: A yeasty expression infiltrates the soaring tangerine notes on the nose, pointing to its youthfulness. The citrus theme continues on the palate where we have the same youthful yeastiness adding some flesh to the zesty body. This is slender yet concentrated, with citric verve and pithiness making it utterly refreshing. The finish is lip-smacking and pristine.

Domaine Barmes-Boucher Rosenberg Pinot Blanc, Alsace, Fr.2019, Alc. 14%

Design of Mine in Gloucester recently advertised some special discounts to celebrate reopening so, of course, I had to go down there ….. for the blog of course….. I had not been there in quite a while (2 years anyone?) and I love their stuff so off I went with wallet in hand. To my delight, GMG contributor Joanne was minding the store and we had a nice chat. I purchased a sweater at a very reasonable price made even better by the application of the mystery discount! Friendly service and interesting items make it a no brainer. Welcome back for the Spring Design of Mine!
We’re excited to share some more progress from our new showroom in Waltham! When we first moved into this space, it felt small, dark and crowded. The space that we’ve created feels anything but. It’s a testament to the power of good design.
To learn more about our design processes and our inspirations for this new space, check out our story here.
