Mark Your Calendar: March Pasco Lecture Series

barry

The next Pasco Author Lecture Series will take place on Sunday, March 9 at 2:00 pm
featuring William David Barry : Maine…the Wilder Side of New England.

William David Barry’s lively history of the state of Maine spans nearly 500 years. It begins with the ‘almost vaudevillian’ encounter between navigator Giovanni da Verrazzano and the native inhabitants of ‘the rocky shore of Maine,’ who greeted Verrazzano with ‘blood-curdling shouts, derisive laughter, bared bottoms, and leisurely volleys of arrows.’ The book concludes with an overview of the many cultural and political changes of recent years, including the decline of the pulp and paper industry and ‘old-style agriculture’ and the influx of non-European immigrants.

It is our pleasure to welcome this well-known Maine history writer to  Graves Library. Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library is proud to offer this series at no charge and open to the public. This Series is sponsored by: Kennebunk Savings Bank and The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation. The Library is  located at 18 Maine Street in Kennebunkport. FMI please call 967-2778 or for further details or visit us our website: www.graveslibrary.org.
