Come to the Maine Lighthouse Museum on Saturday, Dec. 14th for a great book signing event with Author Jan Gilley.  She will be signing her new book "Light on Jib Island" at the museum from 11 am to 3 pm.  Sure to please someone on your Christmas list!!  For more information you may call the museum at 594-3301, check our website at www.mainelighthousemuseum.org or like us on Facebook.

 

This is a novel for young people and adults alike.In the early 1920s, the Bartons were a lightkeeping family on Jib Island several miles off the Maine coast. The adventures of the four Barton children and their parents in this isolated place are snapshots of the real lives of those who kept the lights burning to make travel safer for the many boats that sailed the cold and treacherous Maine waters. Visits from a very capable and loving grandmother and a spunky itinerant school teacher add excitement, as do the accidents of nature that the family must manage

 

HOPEFULLY THE BOOK SIGNING WILL TAKE PLACE SOMETIME NEXT YEAR, SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
