Camden author Barbara Kent Lawrence will give a talk titled On Fish and Love Tuesday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m. at the Belfast Free Library, 106 High St.

What’s love got to do with fish? Attendees will find out as Lawrence discusses her new novel, “The Other Island: Ben’s Story,” sequel to her first novel, “Islands of Time.”

In the late 1950’s, a summer girl is not allowed to love a year-round boy, son of a fishing family from Downeast Maine. Yet, in “Island of Time,” Rebecca does. In the sequel, Ben tells his side of the story … and also shares his perspective on the changing fisheries of the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank.

Lawrence, who taught courses including writing and memoir at Lesley and Northeastern universities, also will discuss her writing process, answer questions and sign and sell books. This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 338-3884, ext. 10.
