Gabby Gathering – Maine Author Earl Brechlin
Tuesday, August 16th at 2:30pm in-person at the library
Join Maine author Earl Brechlin as he shares some of his favorites from more than 300 people, places, things and events that have made Maine what it is today during a live talk and slide show.
“”Wild! Weird! Wonderful! Maine.” is a celebration of all that makes the state unique — that which sets it apart from the rest of the lower 48 — the people, the places, and the things both real, and sometimes imagined, you won’t find anyplace else,” Brechlin explains.
