I was listening to Morning Edition on Maine Public Radio this morning and heard Garrison Keillor talk about the Pulitzer Prize winning author Jean Stafford
during his Writer's Almanac segment. I can't say that I have read her works or had even heard of her a year ago but I have learned a lot about her since I discovered that I was selling her former home
in the Damariscotta Mills section of Newcastle on Damariscotta Lake. She lived there with her husband, the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Robert Lowell
, for a time in the 40's. You can listen to the podcast here
. So if two Pulitzer Prize winning authors lived in the house you can just imagine how much creative energy the home is waiting to bestow on its next owner.
