Meet Civil War Novelist Peter Bridgford

Thursday, April 4
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The seeds of Peter’s Civil War novel, Where Eagles Dare Not Perch, were planted with a high school project that involved him finding letters from a relative that fought in the Civil War. He went on to study history and is currently on the board of the 5th ME Regiment Museum on Peaks Island. His focus in this novel is on the grim reality of living through a war, on how much war changes individuals and society, and on how we then move on. This promises to be an excellent talk and discussion!

Copies of Peter’s book will be available for purchase and signing after the talk.

Tales from Hiking the Pacific Coast Trail

Thursday, 5/30/2019 – rescheduled from November 2018!
6:30-7:30 PM

In 2010 Anne O’Regan left her home in Boston and traveled west to do what, on average, only 300 people accomplish each year. Starting in Campo, California on the Mexican border, she backpacked north for 2,650 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).  Traveling through California, Oregon and Washington, she completed her thru-hike five months later in Manning Park, Canada. 

Join us as Anne shares tales from the trail, and offers a unique visual presentation gleaned from over 3,000 photographs taken along the way.

(This talk was originally schedule in December but was snowed out!)
