BRUNSWICK — Curtis Memorial Library invites to community to an author event featuring knitter and mountain climber Laurie Doran at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 25.

Doran will talk about her quest to knit a variety of mittens from mountain regions around the world using ancient techniques and indigenous materials.

The mitten patterns from around the world gave her insights into other cultures and her mountaineering experiences led her to a reverence for the mountains and respect for harsh climates.

A selection of Doran’s mittens are on display at the library throughout the month of January, including mittens inspired by Andean Mountains, Mount Everest, Norway, Nepal and Maine.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call (207) 725- 5242 or visit
