No need to drive anywhere! Saturday, November 2nd is jam-packed with local events: a book sale, book signing, wine tasting and live musical performance.
Library Fall Festival of Books
The library’s annual Fall Festival of Books and Bake Sale takes place from 8 to noon. Get there early: there’s usually a line before they open the doors! There is a new limit to the number of people who can enter the basement, where the sale takes place, so expect to be assigned a number when you arrive. (We’ll run a story in the next week or so about this.) Thanks to the dedicated volunteers of the Friends of the Library, this twice-a-year sale raises funds for books, media, and library programs and events.
History Barn book signing
The History Barn is open the first Saturday of the month from 9:00 AM to Noon. Jean Flahive, local author of “Teddy Roosevelt, Millie and the Elegant Ride”, a tale of the historic Portland-Lewiston Interurban, will be signing copies of her book from 9 AM to Noon at the New Gloucester History Barn, right across the parking lot from the library. This is co-sponsored by the New Gloucester Historical Society and the Seashore Trolley Museum.
Village Store wine tasting
Fall wines from Lebanon, Italy, NY Finger Lakes and California will be presented by Crush Distributors and SoPo Distributors. Tasting from 5 to 7 PM promises to be delicious!
Village Coffee House
The Renovators play memorable original music drawing from the influences of Blues, Country, Roots Rock, Soul, Motown, Gospel and New Orleans sounds. Their music stems from many regions and many eras… in short something for everyone. The Band includes Bob Rasero, guitar/vocal, Robin Worthley, keyboards, Kent Allen, bass/vocals and Jeff Davison, drums/vocals. From 7:30 to 9:30 at the Congregational Church Community Room. $10 at the door.
