Flower farmer and author Lisa Lynn Biggar to discuss her novella ‘Unpasteurized’

CHESTERTOWN — Local flower farmer and author Lisa Lynn Biggar will discuss her book “Unpasteurized” on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at The Kitchen and Pub at The Imperial Hotel as The Bookplate continues its author event series in partnership with Chef Steve Quigg and The Kitchen. 

In what one reviewer has described as “a beautiful and captivating novella,” Biggar takes the reader on a journey through the lives of the characters, filled with love, loss and sacrifice.

She weaves together the stories of the intergenerational family on a farm in Pennsylvania, “creating a rich tapestry of emotions and memories.”

“Unpasteurized” has been described as a coming-of-age story  written in the voice of Jessie, who recounts her sometimes exhilarating, sometimes poignant and sometimes painful experiences, all of which are anchored to her grandparents’ farm.

Biggar received a Master of Fine Arts in fiction from Vermont College.

Her poetry and short fiction have appeared in numerous literary journals including Main Street Rag, Bluestem Magazine, The Minnesota Review, Kentucky Review, The Delmarva Review, Superstition Review and Pithead Chapel.

She is the fiction editor for Little Patuxent Review.

She co-owns and operates a cut flower farm in Galena with her husband and two hard-working cats.

This event, which begins at 6 p.m., is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.

For more information, call The Bookplate at 410-778-4167 or email contact@thebookplate.net.

The Kitchen at The Imperial Hotel is located at 208 High St., Chestertown.

The next author events are during Sultana’s Downrigging Festival on Oct. 28 — with authors Kate Milford, Michael Dirda, Nancy Robson and Adam Goodheart — at the new Lawrence Wetlands Preserve building at 301 S. Mill St., Chestertown.
