EAC’s Sunday Afternoons at the Arts Center series will continue at 3 pm, April 2, when artist and author Catherine J.S. Lee will share readings from her first book, Island Secrets: Stories from the Coast of Maine, and offer a preview from her in-process story collection.
Lee lives, writes, and teaches in Eastport, where she’s lived since the age of five. While she is better known as a haiku poet and haiga artist, fiction has always been her favorite form of writing. Her short fiction and haiku have appeared in many print and online journals, and she is the author of the award-winning haiku collection, All That Remains.
Lee is an active board member with local non-profits, including Peavey Memorial Library
and the Eastport Arts Center. In her free time, she enjoys Zentangling, playing the five-string
banjo and the banjolele, hosting blues and folk music shows on WSHD radio, and chasing
sunsets with her digital cameras.
Island Secrets: Stories from the Coast of Maine is Lee’s first published book-length work
of fiction. She is currently writing stories for a second collection, Forest Whispers: More Stories
from the Coast of Maine
, and revising a novel, Summer’s End.

Sunday Afternoons at the Arts Center programs are held in Eastport Arts Center’s cozy downstairs Washington Street Gallery, amidst rotating exhibitions. Admission is by voluntary donation; proceeds are shared equally between the presenters and EAC constituent group The Concert Series, which offers year-round programming run by volunteers. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport. EAC abides by the State of Maine CDC COVID guidelines, revisiting our policy monthly. Additionally, at this time, the EAC encourages people to wear masks when in our building.
