Our director since Spring 2016, Karen has a background in public relations and writing. The former editor of the quarterly arts publication, Northern Journeys Magazine, she is a freelance writer who has been a regular contributor to The Coastal Journal and The Sun Journal for twenty years. She also edits both fiction and non-fiction manuscripts.

A life-long reader, Karen first discovered our library when she shared her children’s book during story time. She co-authored The Adventures of Skiff, the Harbormaster’s Cat, illustrated by Harpswell artist Donna Peterson, in 2008. This story is set right here in Cundy’s Harbor!
