Cameron Hedstrom will be reading excerpts from his new book, “Theodore,” Aug. 9.

Watershed alumnus Cameron Hedstrom, class of 2021, has created an anthology in memory of his brother Theodore, who died in a house fire in February of this year. The book, which was part of his senior project, is a compilation of poems, artwork, photographs, and essays about his brother. A book launch will be held Monday, Aug. 9, from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at Watershed School, 1 Free St., in Camden.

“Please join us for the launch of a project that has brought me immense solace,” said Hedstrom. “‘Theodore’ is a project of passion. Thanks to Watershed School, and Ronni Blaisdell, who gave me the time and support to envision this project. My gratitude goes out to Carla P. White for her movingly beautiful design of the book. She realized my vision better than I could have imagined. I am confident that readers will enjoy the dedication we have created.”

Hedstrom will be reading excerpts from the book, signing copies, as well as sharing his experience creating the project. Each book costs $25. Proceeds will benefit the Theodore’s Light Foundation, which has provided a literal beacon of hope for the grieving family. Light refreshments will be served.
