“A Story from a Basket Maker’s Daughter - The Hill”

Maryann Barto grew up in the West Taghkanic Proper family with her basket-making mother, which inspired this book. Her family's stories have been living history and enhanced her love for researching forgotten history to include in her writing.

Maryann will read from and discuss her new novel, set in a rustic village known as The Hill, whose members have depended upon one another for survival, fearing the consequences of their secrets and the changes around them.

Maryann grew up in West Taghkanic with her basket making mother, which gave her the inspiration to write A Story from a Basket Makers Daughter The Hill. This is the first in a series that she hopes to release. Maryann graduated from Columbia Greene Community College and went on to get her B.A. in Community and Human Services at Empire State College. She resides in the Adirondack region with her husband and pets.
