Islandport Press will release midcoast author May Davidson’s new book “Salt and Roses,” a collection of more than 50 essays, on September 28. Davidson published her first book, a memoir called “Whatever It Takes,” in 2019, at age 90.

Davidson was born in Damariscotta in 1929. She worked as a columnist for the Lincoln County News, among many other endeavors; many of the essays in the book were originally published in the newspaper.

The author often calls attention to the beauty in the everyday, whether on her farm or while relaxing by the ocean. She tells stories about her mother’s close call with a hive of honeybees, a clever runaway sheep and the crows at the edge of her farm, among others.
