TENANTS HARBOR — Author/artist Sandra Mason Dickson will present her new book, Mary Townsend Mason ~ Yuletide Greetings, Saturday, Nov. 30, at Jackson Memorial Library, as part of Yuletide in Saint George.
Beginning at 10:30 a.m., Dickson will discuss the forty-year history of her artist grandmother’s hand-designed Christmas cards that employed catchy verse and clever ink drawings to illustrate the path of the Mason family amid landmark events in America’s history.
The book features vintage photographs, some of MTM’s Monhegan paintings, and full-color flower paintings for which MTM was best known, according to a news release.
“My grandmother epitomized a new era of independent women who successfully balanced a career with raising a family,” said Dickson, in the release. “She was a great inspiration.”
Dickson’s talk will include a book signing and refreshments.
