RECENT EVENTS

Dining With The Stars

On September 11th the Chase Emerson Memorial Library hosted “Dining with the Stars”, an evening of dining at Deer Isle’s historic Pilgrim’s Inn followed by a presentation by astronomy expert Davida Kellogg.

At the Inn, guests were treated to drinks, salad, then a choice of chicken, fish, or vegetarian entrees followed by a flourless chocolate cake with raspberry coulis.

Originally, the after-dinner presentation by astronomy expert Davida Kellogg was to center around star gazing in relation to navigation, but a thick fog meant a change of plans. Instead, participants moved across the street to the library for hands-on instruction on use of a compass rose in nautical map navigation.

Book Talk and Signing With Linda Greenlaw

Wednesday, May 30th at 4:30 p.m.

Maine author and Stonington native Linda Greenlaw spoke to a standing room only group and signed books afterward. 

Linda talked about how she came to write books, as well as being a swordfish boat captain. "What I love about fishing is the optimism...there's always reason to hope, and that's what I love about the life that I have chosen."

The library had a limited number of Linda's Jane Bunker mystery, "Shiver Hitch", available for purchase.
