BLUE HILL — The Friends of the Blue Hill Public Library will hold their first-Saturday-of-the-month book sale on Oct. 1 in the library’s basement “book nook” from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Art writer and poet Carl Little will talk about the making of his new book, “Art of Acadia,” written with his brother David, at the library on Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m.
Published in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Acadia National Park, the book highlights the artists who have been inspired by the landscape of greater Mount Desert Island, the Cranberry Isles and Schoodic Point, from the early 19th century to today.
Books will be available for sale and signing.
The library also will host an opera preview event for “Tristan und Isolde” on Friday, Oct. 7, at 1 p.m.
The opera will be simulcast at The Grand in Ellsworth on Oct. 8.
All are welcome. No previous opera knowledge is needed, and admission is free.
For more information on any of these events, call the library at 374-5515.
