6:00pm - 7:00pm

Join Polly Brandoff, a nomad at heart, a sociocultural anthropologist, and a mom as she shares the experiences from her family's adventurous journey around the United States in 2019. She will reflect on the ups-and-downs of traveling across the country with her husband, a toddler, and a dog, while also working remotely. One sunny day in January 2019, Polly and her family gave up their Florida apartment, donated most of their furniture, moved their sentimental objects to a small storage container, and stuffed their car with everything they would live off of for a year. In search of a place to call home, they traveled across 22 states stopping for a week or for a month at different points of interest - exploring, learning, meeting new people, and ultimately becoming different people themselves. In miles, their journey spans about a third of the length of the Earth at the equator! After countless miles and adventures on the road, they have chosen Midcoast Maine to be their home. Please email librarian@voselibrary.org by 3pm on March 17 to request an invitation and password to this event.
