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. (

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.
