Left Bank Books on Church Street in Belfast invites the public to celebrate the release of writer-farmer Kirsten Lie-Nielsen’s new book, “So You Want to Be a Modern Homesteader: All the Dirt on Living the Good Life,” at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, December 11. Lie-Nielsen and her partner live on a farm in Liberty where they are restoring an 1860s-era farmhouse and surrounding land.

Lie-Nielsen writes regularly about the lessons of life on the farm for publications such as Grit, Mother Earth News, Backyard Poultry, and Hobbyfarms.com, and her first book, “The Modern Homesteader’s Guide to Keeping Geese,” was released in October 2017.
