Food, hunger and family will be the focus of a reception and readings by eight writers.

The essays by writers, Jenny Bicks, Hal Crowther, Ron Currie, Wes McNair, Cathie Pelletier, Kate Russo, Lee Smith and Georgia Zildjian, are among the 70 essays included in Breaking Bread which focus on food and how it sustains us -mind, body and soul. The book was edited and collected by Castine writer and Blue Angel founder Deborah Joy Corey and Colby College professor and writer Debra Spark, who also contributed essays to the collection.
