Jefferson Navicky. Elizabeth Coatsworth & Kate Barnes: Processing the Literary Archives of Mother & Daughter

Location / Zoom TBA.

Jefferson had the rare good fortune of processing the extensive archival papers of Elizabeth Coatsworth, one of the most accomplished children’s book authors and poets of the mid 20th century, as well as the papers of her daughter, Kate Barnes, Maine’s first Poet Laureate. Together, their papers present an intimate glimpse into the makings of a matriarchal line of Maine writers. Jefferson will speak about his experience processing these collections, as well as present illustrative work.
