Local poets Kristen Lindquist and Paul McFarland will offer unique perspectives on the landscape and people of the Penobscot Bay region when they present Stories from Maine. Their program, part of the Adventures in Living Well series, is set for Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Anderson Inn, Community Drive at Quarry Hill. Snow date is the following day.

Lindquist and McFarland will read aloud from their respective works in a lively program that runs the poetic gamut from humorous to reflective, rhyming lines to free verse. For attendees, the net effect will be a morning full of fresh takes on day-to-day life in Midcoast Maine.

Both Lindquist and McFarland are well-known for their contributions to the local literary scene. A member of Rockport Public Library’s Poets’ Corner group, McFarland has held numerous readings in the area. Lindquist has published two poetry collections and had three of her poems featured on Garrison Keillor’s “Writer’s Almanac” series when it ran on National Public Radio.

Copies of Lindquist’s 2017 collection, “Tourists in the Known World,” will be available for purchase and signing during the February event.

Quarry Hill’s ongoing Adventures in Living Well series is designed for adults age 50 and older. The program is free but requires advance registration — call Quarry Hill at 921-6116 or email qhinfo@pbmc.org.
