Old Professor’s Bookshop, 99 Main Street, Belfast, will host a free talk by author Kim Yesis on Saturday, January 18, from 3 to 4 p.m. Yesis will discuss and sign copies of her book, “Side by Side: Tales from Behind the Canvas,” about her husband’s mid-life career shift from engineering to fine art and her own journey in support of his venture. She struggled to maintain them during the years it took him to succeed, then drew from their experience to realize her own dream of becoming a writer.
