Come Hear Author Mac Smith on his book Mainers on the Titanic Saturday September 20 at 10:30 am

Mainers on the Titanic traces the stories of passengers on that fateful ship who had ties to Maine.  Many of them were wealthy summer visitors to Mount Desert Island, but there were many other residents of the state aboard as well.  Their tales are retold in a lively way here, along with the sinking-related events in the state at that time.  Meticulously researched, this book reveals the agonizing day-to-day wait of Mainers for news of what really happened to their loved ones aboard and tells the stories of Maine passengers from their boarding to the sinking, rescue, and arrival back in the country, and, for those who did not survive, their final coming ashore in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  It's a unique and fascinating addition to the Titanic story and to Maine history.

About the author:  A Navy veteran of the First Gulf War and former news reporter for the Bar Harbor Times, Mac Smith lives in Stockton Springs, Maine, in the village of Sandy Point, where he is restoring the family homestead.  This is his first book.

Langlais Art Trail

The Langlais Art Trail is devoted to the mapping of the spirited art of Bernard Langlais (1921 - 1977) across his native state. The Appleton Library is proud to be a part of the Trail. Pieces of his prolific work can be viewed and enjoyed any time the library is open. For more information about the Trail, please visit http://langlaisarttrail.org/. An interesting news report about the Langlais exhibit at Colby College can be viewed at http://www.wcsh6.com/story/news/local/207/2014/07/18/colby-college-museum-art-bernard-langlais/12865361/
