LOVELL — The Hobbs Library Speaker Series continues on Thursday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. with an in-person talk by Lake Living Magazine’s Laurie LaMountain. Her talk is entitled “Lake Living Magazine, A Labor of Love”.  

Twenty-six years ago, after working with a trade publication covering the timber frame industry, LaMountain created Lake Living, a quarterly magazine that would give readers a seasonal sense of the people, places and things that make this part of Maine exceptional. Her intention is to focus on the unusual. A luthier who crafts guitars for left-handed musicians, an architect who led the restoration of the Winslow Homer studio, a boat builder who builds elegant electric boats, and an artist who fashions vintage water skis into skateboards are just a handful of the people she has interviewed for articles. Lake Living is a series of love letters written to her beloved home corner of Maine.

This is an in-person talk. For details, go to For queries, contact the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library at 207-925-3177. The Hobbs Library Speaker Series is supported in part by a generous contribution from Norway Savings Bank.
