Meet The Hermit: The Mysterious Life of Jim Whyte

Thursday, November 21
6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
 

When Jim Whyte settled outside the slate mining town of Monson, Maine in 1895, people hardly knew what to make of him. And almost 130 years later, we still don’t. A world traveler that spoke six languages fluently, Whyte came to town with sacks full of money and a fierce desire to keep to himself. It was clear that Whyte was hiding from something—enough to make even the FBI to eventually come looking. But even the Feds couldn’t imagine how Whyte, who lost every penny he had when WWI broke out, amassed another fortune before he died.

Based on the true story, Hermit follows one man’s quest to discover all he can about Whyte’s secret life before it’s too late.

Meet Author and Presenter Extraordinaire Jeffry Ryan!
Jeffrey Ryan is an author, adventurer, photographer and historian. He has written several books about his outdoor exploits, his fascination with hiking trails and the people and places found just off the beaten path. His debut book, Appalachian Odyssey: A 28-year hike on America’s trail was hailed by the former Executive Editor of National Geographic as “a classic of nature and travel writing” and set off a national tour (in a 1985 VW camper, no less). His books are known for weaving a deep appreciation for history into walks across contemporary landscapes that give readers the feeling they are hiking right alongside. When Jeff isn’t trekking, chasing down a great story, or spinning yarns from his keyboard, he enjoys sharing his adventures with audiences who love the outdoors. He spends much of his time in his beloved native state of Maine.

Storytelling Night

Tuesday, November 26
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
 

Everyone has a story to tell. Would you like to tell yours?

In celebration of Thanksgiving, we’re holding a storytelling night where everyone is welcome to participate.

There are just a few rules.

  1. The story has to be true.
  2. The story should tell us something about who you are, what makes you tick.
  3. The story can’t be longer than 10 minutes.

We can fit in seven or eight stories, so arrive early to sign up for a slot if you don’t want to miss out!

Please let me know if you have any questions or want to practice beforehand! 

We look forward to a night of humor, fun, and maybe even a tear or two.

We know you have a story to tell. We hope you’ll join us to tell it.
