Gabby Gathering – “Mythical Creatures of Maine” by Christopher Packard
Thursday, December 2, 2021, 2:30-3:30pm via Zoom https://networkmaine.zoom.us/j/83384829257 Meeting ID: 833 8482 9257
Christopher Packard is the author of “”Mythical Creatures of Maine: Fantastic Beasts from Legend and Folklore” and a full-time high school science teacher at Bangor High School. He is also a trail runner, swordfighter, storyteller, and outdoor adventurer. When not teaching, writing, or wandering in the wilds he can often be found on his small homestead in Hampden, Maine gardening, raising chickens, and spending time with his wife and two sons. Prior to taking up teaching and writing he worked as an ecological restoration technician, field biologist, naturalist, and outdoor educator. He has earned some pieces of paper that say things about degrees in biology and education. But most of his learning has come from his passion for discovery and his drive to bring people together.
We change our Winter hours in October. As of October 1st we are now open Tuesday – Saturday, 9am-noon and 2-5pm. We are closed on Mondays during the winter. We are currently requiring masks inside the library. For more information, visit www.ogunquitlibrary.com, email us at email@example.com, or call 207 646 9024.
