The Kent Memorial Library will present a program with Kent author Athenaide Dallett June 13 at 3 p.m.

Dallett will discuss her newly published book “The Absinthe Association” at the Main Street library

Based on a true story, the book chronicles the adventures of a group of young college grads who distill absinthe for a lark, only to find that its popularity in the underground music scene of Boston and Providence propels them into danger.

The very first distillation conducted by the real-life Absinthe Association took place at a camp in Kent Hollow in Kent.

A motley crew, including grad students at Harvard and MIT, a short-order cook and a young lawyer from Providence, and a music impresario from the Cape, converged in Kent Hollow to distill wormwood-soaked grain alcohol into an authentic, and illegal, thujone-laced absinthe.
