Member Monday – Matt Wheeler presents Peggy McKenna’s Ode to Waldo County

Zoom

Monday, February 8th
Noon
Free for members

Peggy McKenna, a Pennsylvania native, landed in Montville, Maine, in 1971. She was part of the first wave of “back-to-the-landers,” young ideologues wanting simple, rural lives. The people she came to know and appreciate— locals with long roots and transplants like herself— were frequent subjects of her photography, both as a journalist for the upstart Waldo Independent and as a resident of Montville growing roots of her own. Join PMM Digital Curator Matt Wheeler for a retrospective of Peggy’s work.
