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.

Tim Hollister, a resident of West Hartford, Connecticut, lost his 17-year-old son Reid in a one-car crash on an interstate highway in central Connecticut in 2006.  After Reid’s passing, Tim became an advocate for safer teen driving, serving during 2007-08 on a task force that overhauled Connecticut’s teen driver laws, and then in 2009, launching his national blog for parents of teen drivers, “From Reid’s Dad.” For his advocacy, in 2010, Tim received the nation’s highest civilian award for traffic safety, from the U.S. Department of Transportation. In 2013, Tim published Not So Fast: Parenting Your Teen Through the Dangers of Driving (Chicago Review Press), for which Tim received national awards from the Governors Highway Safety Association and the National Safety Council, and appeared on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley, and the “Home and Family Show” on the Hallmark Channel. In 2015, Tim published His Father Still: A Parenting Memoir, his candid story of parenting his rambunctious son, and a cautionary tale for all parents about the challenge of balancing freedom and protection.  His Father Still was an Oprah Book Club Recommended Summer Reading selection in July 2016, and has been featured in Publishers Weekly.  Most recently, Tim’s teen driving book Not So Fast has been published in Spanish and featured in a You Tube video sponsored by The Travelers insurance company.  A second edition of Not So Fast will be published in March 2018. Most recently, in return for a donation to Reid’s Memorial Fund, Tim is acting as a national spokesperson for Verizon, promoting the use of its teen driver vehicle monitoring technology, called Hum by Verizon. In his spare time, Tim is an environmental attorney, ranked among the Best Lawyers in America.

 

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 twenty-three previous Faith Fairchild mysteries, the first of which received the Agatha Award for best first mystery.  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.” The recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at Malice Domestic, she has been nominated for the Maine Literary Award, the Edgar Award, the Mary Higgins Clark Award, and the Macavity Award.  She lives in Massachusetts and Maine with her husband.

 

 

For most of her adult life, resourceful caterer Faith Fairchild has called the sleepy Massachusetts village of Aleford home. While the native New Yorker has come to know the region well, she isn’t familiar with Havencrest, a privileged enclave, until the owner of Rowan House, a secluded sprawling Arts & Crafts mansion, calls her about catering a weekend house party.

Producer/director of a string of hit musicals, Max Dane-a Broadway legend is throwing a lavish party to celebrate his seventieth birthday. At the house as they discuss the event, Faith’s client makes a startling confession. “I didn’t hire you for your cooking skills, fine as they may be; but for your sleuthing ability. You see, one of the guests wants to kill me.” Faith’s only clue is a sinister birthday gift the man received the week before-an empty casket sent anonymously containing a 20-year-old Playbill from Max’s last, and only failed, production-Heaven or Hell.  Book on sale date – December 5, 2017.

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.
