Kim’s talk will focus on her research of Cumberland history for Bucket of Blood, Harrison Hot Springs for Agony of St. Alice and the creation of the fantasy landscape in Love & Lovecraft.

Kim has a background in anthropology and travel writing. She has written four books and is a partner in Fox&Bee Studio. She has a website: foxandbee.com and is on Facebook. Kim lives in Cumberland.

Members are to write a short piece about a place or landscape they enjoy or love and bring it to the January 16th meeting.
