George W. Emery, Vice Admiral, United States Navy (Retired), will be at Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library in Kennebunkport on June 22 at 2:00 p.m. to talk about his new book, In Their Own Words : The Navy Fights the War of 1812.

According to Christopher McKee of the Newberry Library, Chicago,

George W. Emery has for many years been a student of naval history and an astute and assiduous collector of books, manuscripts, and ephemera that document this tradition-forming period in the U.S. Navy’s history. In Their Own Words follows the run-up to and the course of the War of 1812 in documents that the author has selected from his larger collection to highlight this central event in the Navy’s early story. (Foreword, In Their Own Words.)

Light refreshments will follow the book signing. Graves Library is located at 18 Maine
Street in Kennebunkport. FMI contact Louis T Graves Memorial Public Library at 967-2778 or visit our website at
