Everybody is invited to meet author and historian Elinor DeWire for a few scary maritime tales Saturday, Oct. 8, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Maine Lighthouse Museum, 1 Park Drive.

Almost every lighthouse claims to have a ghost … or two or three. DeWire’s visit offers and fun and slightly hair-raising visit to a few haunted lighthouses to hear stories of their ghosts.

For more information, call 594-3301; visit mainelighthousemuseum.org; or check out the museum’s Facebook page.
