The Waterville Public Library is pleased to announce author and illustrator Charlotte Agell’s Faces Tell Stories exhibition in the Carnegie Gallery on the fourth floor of the library. The show opened on Monday, April 1, 2024, will run through Friday, September 20, 2024, and features 96 portraits of women—some fictional, some real. Agell shares, “When I was a child, I used to think that we were all the same person. I was the ME version, and you the YOU. This project brings me back to that feeling.”
