    Author Talk: Jayne Boisvert-Pilgrimage to Paris: The Cheapo Snob’s Guide to the City and the Americans Who Lived There

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Paris: City of Light, rich in art, architecture, culture, and history, home of Notre-Dame, the Louvre, and so many other landmarks. It’s no wonder the French capital is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. But there is more to Paris than the Eiffel Tower. Jayne R. Boisvert’s new guide book, , offers an enjoyable and unique way to discover the city. This easy-to-use guide includes travel tips, main attractions, free (and nearly free) things to do, shopping, museums, churches, cafés, and restaurants. The book also provides short biographies and addresses associated with famous Americans—writers, journalists, politicians, musicians and performers, artists and architects, and several other interesting people who don’t fit neatly into typical categories—who spent time living la belle vie in the French capital.

    Jayne R. Boisvert obtained a Master of Arts degree in French from Boston College and a Ph.D. from the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the State University at Albany, New York. An ardent traveler, she has visited many different areas of France and the Francophone world over the years.

    Co-sponsored with the Rockland Historical Society.
    Rockland Historical Society Board Member Leith MacDonald will give a talk on the Art and Artists of Monhegan. As a young artist, Leith spent significant time on Monhegan, painting the rugged coast. He developed a knowledge and love of Monhegan’s art history and began giving guided tours – following in the footsteps of George Bellows, Rockwell Kent, Edward Hopper, and others – exploring the sites that inspired many great masterworks. Leith recently curated and cataloged a large private collection of Monhegan art. He will share photos of some of the paintings in the collection and explore the connections between the artists and their subjects on Monhegan, Maine’s premier art colony. Following Leith’s talk, there will be refreshments and conversation in the Museum of the Rockland Historical Society.

    American Travelling Morrice Performance

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    This performance will take place in the side staff parking lot of the Library.

    The American Travelling Morrice is comprised of dancers and musicians from across North America and abroad. Morris dancing is an English country tradition, with roots in medieval street theatre. For hundreds of years, teams of white-clad dancers have capered and stepped through the intricate patterns of the dance, clashing wooden sticks and waving handkerchiefs in time to lively traditional tunes. The American Travelling Morrice continues this tradition for a week each summer, bringing the morris dance to a new geographical region.

    A morris “stand” is a colorful spectacle indeed. The dancers, with small bells strapped to their legs, leap through complex figures accompanied by the music of the accordion, fiddle, or the ancient pipe and tabor. Directing the proceedings with comical grace is the all-licensed Fool, whose antics amuse the onlookers and harass the dancers. Moreover, it was thought in ancient times that morris dancing brought good luck and prosperity to the community.

    Author Talk: Jeff Ryan- Hermit: The Mysterious Life of Jim Wyte

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Based on a true story, Hermit: The Mysterious Life of Jim Wyte, by Maine author and historian Jeffrey Ryan, weaves a tale almost too fantastic to be believed.When Jim Whyte settled outside the slate mining town of Monson, Maine in 1895, people hardly knew what to make of him. 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 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.

Ms. Perry’s memoir of her Maine childhood, After the Eclipse: A Mother’s Murder, a Daughter’s Search, is both a gripping mystery and a heart-breaking love letter to the fiercely devoted mother she lost.” – Read ME recommending author Tess Gerritsen.
