In Conversation With Kerri Arsenault
On November 19, we enjoyed a socially distanced event with Kerri Arsenault, author of Mill Town. Kerri had a wonderful childhood growing up in Mexico, Maine where her parents, relatives, and several generations before them, were employed by the local paper mill. As an adult, Kerri learned that the financial security that came from that work came with a cost to the health of the people and the environment. Mill Town is part memoir, part investigative journalism. It explores the impact of big business and life of the middle class. Here is a video of our conversation.
