Camden — Christopher White will read from, discuss and sign his new book “The Last Lobster: Boom or Bust for Maine's Greatest Fishery?” Wednesday, June 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Owl & Turtle Bookshop Café, 33 Bay View St.

In the last five years, Maine lobstermen’s annual harvest has exceeded 120 million pounds, six times that of the harvest from the 1980s. An oversupply of lobster has prompted a drop in price, so lobstermen must work even harder than before. How long can this boom last … and can the Maine coast, reliant as it is on the seafood industry, survive it? In “The Last Lobster,” White, author of “Skipjack” and “The Melting World,” examines this curious boom in America’s lobster industry and its implications.
