Jane Freeberg

Author Jane Freeberg (1933-2019) grew up in Queens, N.Y., and graduated from Adelphi College with a degree in English. Eventually she moved to Georgetown Island in Midcoast Maine where she resided for a large part of her life. She always had a love for stories, founding book clubs and serving on her library board. She also enjoyed telling stories of families living in her Queens neighborhood. She wrote her first book, The Scallop Christmas, at the age of 76 and said she regretted not getting into the business earlier. The book was based on a true story told to her by her friend Marcia, who lived most of the story. "It rattled around in my brain for 35 years, and when it came to mind, I'd think, 'That's a great story. I ought to write it down,' " she said. "I'm so glad I did."
