Daughters of Long Reach Sunday 5/19 @ 2P

Irene M. Drago's seafaring novel, Daughters of Long Reach, won first place in the "First Novel" category of the 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Drago fell in love with Bath, Maine, and its maritime history in 2013 and has quickly cultivated deep ties to the Kennebec River.  Born in the shadow of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Irene’s father and brother both served on destroyers, which inspired a fascination with ships and boats of all kinds. Life has taken her from Brooklyn to Long Island, Worcester, Washington, D.C., Wichita, Chicago, and now to Bath, Maine.
