EA columnist to speak Aug. 18

ELLSWORTH — Marvin Ott, senior scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center of the Smithsonian Institution, will be giving a presentation on the “Global Challenges Facing the Next President” at the Thursday, Aug. 18, Hancock County Democratic Committee meeting.

The talk will take place at a special time — from 1:30-3 p.m. — in the theater at the Bryant Moore Center on State Street in Ellsworth.

Ott is best known to Hancock County residents as the op-ed author of the “Offshore” series of articles on international affairs for The Ellsworth American, and to his summer neighbors on Cranberry Isles.

In addition to his work at the Wilson Center, Ott also is a professor at Johns Hopkins University.

There will be some time for questions from the audience. Stephen Fay, editor of The Ellsworth American, will moderate this period. This event is free and open to the public.
