One Evening in Maine is a benefit dinner to support the MHC’s programs for educators and at-risk populations on the 60th anniversary of McCloskey’s book.

In 1952, Robert McCloskey published One Morning in Maine, the story of a lost tooth, a wish come true, and Maine at its most beautiful. A hero to many children’s book writers and illustrators today, McCloskey created a vision of Maine that is treasured by children and adults alike. In his Maine-based books (Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, Time of Wonder, and Burt Dow, Deep-water Man), McCloskey depicted a world that many coastal residents know well and an iconic image of Maine that has contributed to an image of our state across the country.
