Charles Ero Masalin will be guest speaker in Lincolnville Community Library’s Autumn Presentations & Concerts series Wednesday evening, Nov. 16. The program will begin 7 p.m. sharp at the library, 208 Main St./routes 173/52 in Lincolnville Center.

Masalin is a voice of experience in the world of business. Commissioned in the U.S. Navy in 1955, he worked as an engineer for destroyers; project manager for nuclear attack submarines; and aide to multiple admirals. After military life, he went on to achieve various CEO positions. His new memoir, “The Zig Zag Path of one Entrepreneur: From Navy Man to Farmer and Every Business In-between,” makes many references to Lincolnville and the surrounding area.

The evening’s concert will be performed by Sara Grey, a singer, banjo player and song collector who is immersed in the song traditions of both sides of the Atlantic. She lived in Scotland for 28 years and has traveled extensively through the United States and Canada, performing and participating in workshops and summer schools.

Grey said she became very aware of how easy it is for people to become insular in their appreciation of music and how important it is for people to see that as songs traveled, they became part of American culture. Her passionate interest is to maintain and strengthen the links between Celtic and American culture.

Tickets are $10; to reserve in advance, call Rosey Gerry at 975-5432.
