To the Valley News:
Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties would like to acknowledge and thank Kristin Kimball, author of The Dirty Life, for presenting at our Annual August Author Address on Aug. 25 at Camp Dudley in Westport. Whether you knew anything about farming or not, Kimball’s passion and energy for farming were contagious! She spoke on the profound joy and various challenges that come with establishing and operating a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm. She shared photos, answered questions, and made herself available afterwards to sign books and share farming techniques with one of LV’s international student from Bosnia. The audience hung on every word while she read aloud a piece from her much anticipated sequel.
Literacy Volunteers would also like to thank all the volunteers and individuals who provided refreshments. A special thanks to Fred Guffy and Matt Storey of Camp Dudley for allowing the use of its unique and beautiful facility.
