A Good Man with a Dog

$10

with Roger Guay

Calendar Oct 19, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Come join the authors of the book, A Good Man with a Dog: A Game Warden’s 25 Years in the Maine Woods, by Roger Guay and Kate Clark Flora.

Guay is a game warden and certified K9 handler, with a successful career that would span twenty-five years and see him establish canine units as a staple of the game warden service. Guay takes readers into the watchful world of a warden, catching poachers and protecting pristine wilderness, and the sometimes CSI-like reconstruction of deer and moose poaching scenes.

His frequent companion is a little brown lab named Reba, who can find discarded weapons, ejected shells, hidden fish, and missing people.

Kate Clark Flora will talk about the fascinating world of true crime that led her into doing research for the Joe Burgess police fiction series she continues to write. A Good Man with a Dog explores Guay’s life as he and his canine partners are exposed to increasingly terrible events, from tracking down hostile poachers to searching for victims of violent crimes.

Books will be available to purchase.

Forts Along the Kennebec

$5

with Lee Cranmer

Calendar Nov 15, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

From 1676 and into the 18th century, much of Maine, including the Kennebec River region, was abandoned by the English due to a series of colonial Indian wars. In 1713, the Treaty of Utrecht afforded a sufficient promise of peace for settlers to return to the frontier of Maine. To secure the frontier and more importantly make the settlers feel secure, a series of four forts were built along the Kennebec between 1720 and 1754.

Join Lee Cranmer, historical archaeologist, as he talks about the history and archaeology of these fascinating forts.
