Born in California, Annalee Johnson grew up in Washington, DC and lived in Oslo, Norway, but has spent her adult life in Newburyport, MA. Her painting has been influenced by the work of Karen Jones and Nella Lush.
She draws on a variety of tools—from hands to palette knife and brush—and materials—from pastels and watercolors to mostly oil, using walnut oil, cold wax, or marble dust to express the beauty of sea, salt marsh, and woodlands across the seasons.

Allison Gilbert, an Emmy award-winning journalist who spends summers in Kinderhook with her family, will read from and discuss her new book. A conversation with the bookstore’s Thomas Chulak and fun, interactive activities with members of the community follows a brief reading.
Focusing on good memories rather than grief, Passed and Present shares 85 ways to remember family and friends we never want to forget. Gilbert’s appearance at the bookstore is part of a nationwide “Memory Bash” tour. Free. Refreshments will be served.
The Chatham Bookstore hosts a nonfiction book group focusing on current affairs, history and biography. The regular meeting time is under discussion, but they meet once a month at 7 pm at the store, and they are looking for new members.
The next meeting will be on Monday, August 1 to discuss Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates (2015, Spiegel & Grau).
