DRA Annual Meeting

August 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Colin Woodard

Colin Woodard

Save the date! Join us for an evening in Darrows Barn for DRA’s Annual Meeting. This year we are pleased to present award winning author, journalist and 2016 Pulitzer Prize Finalist Colin Woodard of the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram.

Woodard will be speaking in part about a series of articles he wrote for the Portland Press Herald last fall entitled “Mayday – Gulf of Maine in Distress.” The series addresses the rapid warming taking place in the Gulf, and the effects this is having on the species that live there.

Woodard is author of The Lobster Coast: Rebels, Rusticators, and the Struggle for a Forgotten Frontier (2004) and American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America (2011), which was named one of the Best Books of 2011 by the editors of The New Republic and The Globalist and received the 2012 Maine Literary Award for non-fiction. His most recent book, American Character: A History of the Epic Struggle Between Individual Liberty and the Common Good, was published in March of this year.

Woodard is currently State & National Affairs Writer at the Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram, where he won a George Polk Award, and was a finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting.

A native of Maine, Woodard is a contributing editor at Politico, and State and National Affairs Writer at The Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram. His work has appeared in dozens of publications including The San Francisco Chronicle, The Economist, The Washington Post, and Smithsonian.

Note: the Annual Meeting was originally scheduled for August 4 and now is August 3.

Instead of dinner this year, we are holding a dessert potluck. Please bring a dessert to share.
