    Virtual Maine History Talk with Kevin Johnson

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Kevin Johnson, photo archivist for the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine will give a virtual guided tour of Rockland photographs found in the museum’s photography archives. Penobscot Marine Museum’s photography archives are made up of dozens of collections and include more than 300,000 photographic images spanning the 1880s to the recent past. Johnson’s slideshow and talk will explore the various collections with a special feature on Rockland, including the works of Kosti Ruohomaa, Maynard Bray, and Ed Coffin.

    Kevin Johnson earned his bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s University and worked for a number of years as a paralegal before deciding he wanted to shift his focus to fine art photography. He earned his Professional Certificate in Photography from the Maine Photographic Workshops, where he first encountered the Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Company’s postcard collection. When the collection needed to be rehoused in 2007, Penobscot Marine Museum brought it into their archive. As the museum’s Photo Archivist, Kevin Johnson has cultivated its current collection into a robust array of works.

    For a link to the Zoom event, please email elewis@rocklandmaine.gov by 4 p.m. on April 1 and identify the event you are interested in attending in the subject line.

    The Secret Ingredient: An Author Talk with KD Fisher

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    KD Fisher

    Two amazing chefs. Two very different restaurants. One recipe for love.

    For single mom Adah Campbell, the executive chef job at a posh restaurant in quaint South Bay, Maine is a dream come true—and the perfect opportunity to start over, far away from a home that’s never felt entirely hers. But fitting in has never been easy, and between a new town, a new boss, and the unexpectedly attractive owner of a rival café, things get off to a rocky start.

    Never did free-spirited Beth Summers think she’d still be in Maine. Travel the world gathering delicious recipes and finding friends and lovers? Absolutely. Step in to run her family’s small-town café? Not so much. However, once Beth commits to something, that’s it. Soon, The Yellow House is the hottest spot in town, but Beth’s out of energy—and out of ideas for moving forward.

    Until Adah Campbell walks into her life. As sparks fly, both chefs have to decide if they are willing to make sacrifices…or if it’s really too many cooks in the kitchen.

    Maine-based author KD Fisher will read an excerpt from their queer romance, The Secret Ingredient, set in the fictional Maine town of South Bay. KD will also discuss the LGBTQ+ romance genre, the daily life of a romance writer, the joys of happily ever afters for the queer community, and answer questions.

    KD Fisher is a queer New England-based writer of authentic, heartfelt LGBTQ+ narratives. KD grew up all over the United States, bouncing from North Carolina to Hawaii to Illinois, and finally settling in Maine where they spend far too much time at the beach. When KD isn’t writing, they can usually be found hiking with their overly enthusiastic dogs, obsessing over plants, or cooking elaborate meals. They love classic country, perfectly ripe tomatoes, and falling asleep in the sun.

    The Merchant of Venice: A Reading by the Rockland Shakespeare Society

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    The Rockland Shakespeare Society will present scenes from The Merchant of Venice, one of Shakespeare’s best-known plays. The society has been engaged in an in-depth study of this fascinating play and looks forward to presenting key scenes to the audience. The members participating are: Jim Trolles, Joseph Coté, Peter Conant, Lisa Goodridge, Alice Bird, and John Bird.

    Each year, beginning in September, the Society explores a tragedy or drama and then moves on to a study of one of Shakespeare’s comedies or problem plays. Study of each play involves a reading of the play over a five meeting schedule, a scholarly paper relating to each act delivered by a member of the group, and lively discussions of topics relating to the play. For further information, contact Marianne Boretz at mboretz@gmail.com. New members welcome.
