The public is invited to attend the annual meeting of the Friends of the Waldoboro Public Library Tuesday, Sept. 13, at the library, 958 Main St./Route 220.

There will be a potluck supper at 5:30 p.m. Utensils, plates, dessert and beverage will be provided; attendees are asked to bring a casserole or salad to share. A brief meeting will follow the supper; and a special program will follow the meeting, at 7 p.m.

Carnivore Conservation Biologist Geri Vistein will present her Coyote — America’s Songdog program about coyotes in Maine and about her book, “I Am Coyote.” Vistein’s presentation will be filled with visuals and wild songs of the coyote. Because the life on earth is deeply interrelated and complex, this presentation touches upon anthropology, archaeology, prehistoric and modern history, Native American life, poetry, human psychology and belief systems, European worldviews, wildlife science and ecology, animal husbandry and more.

Vistein focuses on perceptions and relationships among coyote, Native Americans and European Americans; coyote’s relationship with other wildlife and the ecosystem; how to co-exist with coyote. Attendees are welcome to ask questions and to share their own coyote stories.

This program is free and open to the public.  Copies of “I Am Coyote” will be available to purchase. For more information, call the library at 832-4484 or visit
