Author to Appear In SW Harbor

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Maine author Crash Barry will be appearing at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 5:30 p.m. to present “Tough Island: Live,” a 45-minute monologue replete with funny and honest renderings of his true stories from Matinicus, Maine’s most remote inhabited island.

Since publication in August 2011, Barry’s memoir “Tough Island: True Stories from Matinicus, Maine” has received much critical acclaim.

“If you want a romantic look at life on a Maine island you won’t find it here,” wrote the Progressive Review. “Instead, you’ll get a striking account of an often bitter reality no longer a common part of the American story.”
