'Allagash Tails' author to tell tales
Hope — Hope Library will present “Allagash Tails and Tales” Saturday, Jan. 26, at 2 p.m. “Allagash Tails” is a multi-media presentation narrated by Maine author Tim Caverly from his “Allagash Tails” collection of books and will include a discussion on one of the nations’ premier wild and scenic rivers.
Caverly has worked for the Department of Conservation for 32 years and 18 years as supervisor of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. His show includes music, scenic and historic photographs, as well as stories detailing Caverly and his family’s personal experiences while living in the woods. Canoeing down the river, the audience will experience the Allagash in a whole new way. The event is accompanied by the artistry of Frank Manzo Jr.
This program will interest adults as well as children. One of Caverly's books, “An Allagash Haunting,” was made into a stage play and performed by the Houlton Starbright Children’s Theatre. Hope Library is in the Hope Town Office located at the intersection of routes 105 and 235. For more information, contact El Fontaine at 236-2811.
