Maine author Kate Braestrup is coming to Tuftonboro on Saturday, January 20, at 11AM, for the first Book & Author Lunch of the year at Tuftonboro Free Library. Braestrup is a minister, chaplain to the Maine Warden Service, and author of numerous books including the best-selling memoir, Here If You Need Me.
Praise for Here If You Need Me:
Can be read as a superbly crafted memoir of love, loss, grief, hope and the complex subtleties of faith. Or it can be read as the journey of a strong-minded, warmhearted woman through tragedy to grace… [Braestrup is] remarkable, steady, peaceful and wise.”
Jane Ciabattari, Washington Post
Even the most jaded secularist would fall for the chaplain of the Maine Warden Service.”
Karen Schechner, Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Extraordinary. [Braestrup] writes with affecting gravity about the everyday horrors she encounters. This witty, middle-aged Maine minister has a calm, earthy authority all her own.”
Jennifer Reese, EW
Although laced with tragedy, the book is breezy and humorous – and uplifting.”
-Jerry Harkavy, Boston Globe
