The Lincolnville Community Library hosts Libby Bischof for a virtual talk, “Maine at 200—A Visual History,” on Wednesday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m.

In this richly illustrated presentation, Bischof will use objects, drawings, maps, photographs, and postcards to highlight significant events in Maine’s history, which stretches back more than 12,000 years. Bischof says this year of Maine’s bicentennial provides an opportunity to reflect on the state’s well-known history as well as aspects of the past that have been glossed over or ignored.

Bischof is the executive director of the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education and a professor of history at the University of Southern Maine. She is the author of "Maine Photography: A History, 1840-2015."
