The Warren County Arts group will feature a lecture and discussion by author Robert Romano during its Oct. 13 meeting.
Bob and Trish Romano live with their two black Labs, Winslow and Finnegan, on 12 acres in Blairstown, where he writes a column for Skylands Visitor Magazine.
They have owned a cabin in the Rangeley Lakes Region of western Maine for over 25 years. Walking out the door, they sometimes find a moose while native brook trout share the lakes and rivers with wild landlocked salmon. His first book, “Fishing with Faeries,” is a diary account of his relationship with a magical piece of water in New Jersey.
In his latest book, “The River King” Romano writes poignant tales of small-town Maine, its people and its fly-fishing. In his latest novel, four young friends struggle to find their way in a life filled with the angst of growing up in a backwoods town filled with memorable characters.
Fly-fishing is the common thread that binds these four friends together, but it is also the force that threatens to tear them apart. In addition to a gripping story, Romano’s strong sense of place takes us to a corner of the country that will beckon a visit for those seeking the solace of a simple way of life.
The author’s talk will include a reading of a few brief selections from his books and a description of the region where his novels are set, including a number of photos.
The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. in the Oxford Township Municipal Building, Oxford. Refreshments will be served.
There will be a $3 fee for non-members wishing to participate.
