So You Think You Know Maine? with Tim Caverly – September 24
September 24th: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Maine writer and humorist Tim Caverly presents an interactive presentation called “So You Think You Know Maine?” at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, September 24 at 12:00 pm.
In this quiz-show- style presentation discover the birthplace of Disney’s Bambi, northern forest ice caves, abandoned railroads, ancient pictographs, oceanic whirlpools and tales which can only be described as “Classic Maine.” Learn why there is a cove in Washington County called “Bailey’s Mistake” and where in Maine occurred the event that today is known as the “Lexington of the Seas.”
Caverly has self-published seven books about New England’s northern forest. His stories have been printed in several newspapers, magazines, and outdoor journals. He previously spent 32 years working as a Maine state park ranger, is a founder of the New England reads literacy project, which as of 2019 has reached over 8,600 students from Maine to Vermont.
This event is part of the Summer Talk series, co-sponsored by RE/MAX Jaret & Cohn and The First Bank. Admission to Tuesday talks is $5, with free admission for members of Merryspring.
