“The Story of Severance Lodge” Author Holds Book Signing at Harvest Gold
Portland-born author Carol Severance Taylor is coming to Lovell to present her 2018 book Woodsmoke: The Story of Severance Lodge. Carol’s first full-length book details the history of Lovell’s Severance Lodge from 1930 to 1970. The stories are based on her own memories and on the memoir of Harold E. Severance, her father.
Severance Lodge is located on the eastern shore of Kezar Lake, and is a popular summer vacation spot, home to the Severance Lodge Club, a private community that dates back to the late 1800s. The club offers an exquisite dining experience as well as a tennis court, nearby golf courses, and of course, the sparkling shores of Kezar Lake for those who enjoy swimming or the occasional boat ride. As Harold Severance wrote: “You’ll play the day away and sleep like a baby.”
For lovers of history, especially the history of our old town, this rich text is filled with fascinating stories of Severance Lodge and the family that made it what it is today. Harvest Gold Gallery, also known as the Old Severance House, is hosting a book signing on July 13th from 10-1. Carol will be signing copies of The Story of Severance Lodge among paintings of Kezar Lake by artists like Shelley Pilsbury and Rebecca Klementovich. We could not think of a more perfect place for this event!
Harvest Gold is open daily, but we would love to see you on July 13th to support this Maine author who has written her family’s story. For more information, contact the gallery at (207) 925-6502, or visit our website at www.harvestgoldgallery.com. We’ll see you there!
