The 2010 St. George Summer Literary Series, a program of the Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor, will continue Wednesday, Aug. 4. The series will host Chuck Paine, well known yacht designer and author, at the Ocean View Grange on Route 131 at 5 p.m.

Paine will discuss his 35-year design career and read from and sign his newly published book “My Yacht Designs and the Lessons They Taught Me.” Paine and his partners launched more than 1,000 of the world’s most elegant yachts for a worldwide clientele from his waterfront design studio at Wayfarer Marine Corp. in Camden.

A reception will open the event, then Paine will make a brief introduction, read some selections from his book and conclude with a question and answer session. The public is invited to bring their questions about boat design or book publishing to be answered by an acknowledged master in one of those the fields and neophyte in the other.
