PASCO LECTURE with ROGER GINN @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library
Sep 17 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Graves Library is pleased to welcome local author, Roger Ginn to discuss his latest work New England must not be trampled on : the tragic death of Jonathan Cilley.  Published by DownEast Books in 2016, this biography reveals Cilley’s short life, ie., his early years in New Hampshire, at Bowdoin College, and friendship with Nathaniel Hawthorne.

On February 24, 1938, Maine congressman Jonathan Cilley was killed in Maryland by another congressman from Kentucky in one of the last duels to take place in the United States.  At the time, dueling was not illegal, but Cilley’s death was still a shock to the nation.

Roger Ginn is a retired psychologist who has long had a passion for history.  His interest in what could drive a man to challenge another to a duel of honor, or to accept such a challenge, is what led him to the story of Jonathan Cilley.  He lives in Wells, Maine.

 

 

 

The Pasco Lecture Series is sponsored by the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, Kennebunk Savings Bank, and the Graves Library Snack Team.  The Library is located at 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport, Maine.  Please call the Library at (207) 967-2778 for information on this event or other upcoming programs.  Light refreshments will be served.

PASCO LECTURE with TIMOTHY HOLLISTER @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library
Oct 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library invites Author, Timothy Hollister to Kennebunkport on Sunday, October 22nd at 2:00 p.m.  Mr. Hollister is the author of Not So Fast : Parenting Your Teen Through Dangers of Driving.  Most driving literature for parents focuses on how to teach a teen to drive, without explaining why teen driving is so dangerous in the first place or giving parents a plan to preempt the hazards teens face. By contrast, Not So Fast empowers and guides parents to understand the causes and situations that most often lead to teen crashes and to take specific, proactive steps—before and each time a teen driver gets behind the wheel—to counteract them. This authoritative guide tackles hot button issues such as texting and distracted driving, parenting attitudes (conscious and unconscious), and teen impairment and fatigue—and includes a combination of topics not found in other teen driving guides, such as:

  • How brain development affects driving
  • Why driver’s ed does not produce safe drivers
  • How and why to prepare a “flight plan” for each drive before handing over the keys
  • How and when to say no

Proceeds from the sale of this book support the Reid Samuel Hollister Memorial Fund, which subsidizes infant and toddler education in greater Hartford, Connecticut, and worthy traffic safety causes. (Amazon.com)

The Pasco Lecture Series is sponsored by the Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation, Kennebunk Savings Bank, and the Graves Library Snack Team.  The Library is located at 18 Maine Street, Kennebunkport, Maine.  Please call the Library at (207) 967-2778 for information on this event or other upcoming programs.  Light refreshments will be served.

PASCO LECTURE with KATHERINE HALL PAGE @ Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library
Nov 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Katherine Hall Page is the author of seventeen previous Faith Fairchild mysteries, the first of which received the Agatha Award for best first mystery, and recently The Body in the Snowdrift was honored with the Agatha Award for best novel of 2006. Page also won an Agatha for her short story “The Would-Be Widower.” She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and son.

 

 

Minster’s wife, caterer, and part-time sleuth Faith Fairchild pairs up with Sophie Maxwell, last seen in Body in the Birches and now a newlywed living in historic Savannah, Georgia, where Sophie crosses paths with murder. Another delightful entry in the beloved mystery series, complete with delectable recipes.

Attorney Sophie Maxwell has come to Savannah to be with her new husband, Will. But nothing throws cold water on a hot relationship faster than a dead body. Worse for Sophie, no one believes the body she knows she saw is real. Will is spending an awful lot of time in Atlanta on a case he claims is urgent, and she’s been tasked with house hunting for them with his former sweetheart, who Sophie can’t help but suspect wishes Sophie would return to her Yankee roots!
