Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis falls in love with a fishmonger while working for him as a live-in housekeeper. Her paintings receive more exposure in print coverage and she begins to sell paintings. U.S. Vice President Nixon even contacts the Lewises to purchase one. Her tragedy – she is arthritic.

Tuesday Luncheons!! Catered by Black River Coffee, the next series of luncheons starts at the end of summer; in fact, 3 days before the start of fall! For those of you who do not possess a calendar, fall falls without fail on Bilbo’s birthday. What, you have not read Lord of the Rings?! Well then, the next luncheon is September 19.
If you feel you cannot wait that long before you eat again, why not cross the road and go to Black River Coffee? Elaine would be happy to welcome you! Take your newly-purchased copy of Lord of the Rings to read while you eat. Between now and the end of summer, you will have just enough time to read it!
