BAR HARBOR — Eileen Rockefeller will sign copies of her recently published memoir, “Being a Rockefeller, Becoming Myself,” at Sherman’s Books and Stationery on Thursday, Aug. 21, from 1-3 p.m. She will read from and sign copies of the memoir at The Naturalist’s Notebook in Seal Harbor the following day, Friday, Aug. 22, from 4-5 p.m.
Eileen Rockefeller is the great-granddaughter of John D. Rockefeller and the youngest child of David and Peggy Rockefeller. The first Rockefeller woman to write a personal family memoir, Ms. Rockefeller reveals her family’s wholesome values which contrast with those often held by the rich and famous. Her intimate stories affirm how self-understanding helps make us whole, whatever the circumstances of birth.
Ms. Rockefeller’s memoir shares her stories with disarming vulnerability, connecting the extraordinary experience of being a Rockefeller to the universal one of finding identity and purpose.
