The Baxter Society

The Baxter Society met for the beginning of the 2013-14 season in September with a presentation by author Joyce Butler. Joyce presented an illustrated lecture about her new book, Kennebunkport: The Evolution of an American Town, 1603-2003. Witty and engaging, it was a wonderful talk on the history of a relatively famous town in Maine. In October, we also were delighted to hear from Scott
Nash and learn about Nashbox, a graphic design studio with an expertise in branding, print and media design. Nash has a flair for fun, an eye for the eclectic, and a passion for high quality design that serves their clients best. Scott’s latest book, The High Skies Adventures of Blue Jay The Pirate has become a best-seller. November was a joint meeting with Baxter and the Kate Cheney Chappel Center for the Book at the University of Southern Maine. Two book artists, Mary Howe (from Deer Isle, Me) and erin Sweeney (from Peterborough, NH) presented slides of their past and current book creations and art. For the December meeting, which was a holiday party and lecture, Mr. David
Little presented an illustrated talk about the publication of his new book, Art of Katahdin. A beautifully illustrated book with hundreds of images of Katahdin, David Little spoke about his passion for collecting post cards, paintings, books, and any type of depiction of Maine’s greatest mountain. January is the annual Show and Tell. Any member of FABS that is in the area on the second Wednesday of the month in Portland is welcome to attend.
