Change: Mental Models of Climate Change
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Researchers from the University of Maine at Augusta are interested in learning more about how Mainers think about climate change and other major social changes.

These issues affect people differently, and so people think about them differently. We will use focus groups and photography to explore the many ways Mainers view current issues in climate change and other social changes.

We want to hear from YOU! Every perspective and every level of knowledge is WELCOME and HELPFUL!

Help us BUILD this community conversation TOGETHER!

Art workshop-Kay Carter
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Honoring the Earth and our Environment Thru Art Making

Who - High School and Adults 

No ‘art’ experience needed

Limit 20 students, unlimited observers.

Description:  

Kay Carter will lead this workshop. Participants will spend a short time looking at the ‘Close to Nature’ exhibit in the stairwell gallery and talk together about our connections to and concerns for the planet.  The group will then take time to think a bit about how we can honor the Earth with their artwork.

Participants will make a small 8x8 flag honoring the earth using a variety of mediums:

Crayons

Collage

Colored pencils

Colored markers

There will be a variety of natural materials which participants can use to inform their flag. Suggestions on how to use them will also be available.

Each participant is encouraged to bring images from magazines for collage, scissors, crayons or colored markers.

When all of the flags are completed, we will string them together and hang them in the Library near the ‘Close to Nature’ exhibit.

Please stop by or call the reference desk to reserve your spot: 947-8336 ext 125.

Author Talk-Tess Gerritsen-Shape of Night
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Tess Gerritsen will present her new, stand-alone thriller, "Shape of Night."

Books will be available for purchase.

Tess will talk about what inspired the novel, plus the ideas that inspired her previous novels.  There will be time for questions and answers.

A woman trying to outrun her past is drawn to a coastal village in Maine--and to a string of unsolved murders--in this dark and sexy novel of psychological suspense.

Trained as a medical doctor, Tess built a second career as a thriller writer. Her 28 novels include the Rizzoli and Isles crime series, on which the TV show "Rizzoli & Isles" is based.  Among her titles are HARVEST, GRAVITY, THE SURGEON, PLAYING WITH FIRE, and THE SHAPE OF NIGHT. Her books are translated into 40 languages and more than 30 million copies have been sold.  She lives in Maine.

You may find out more about Tess on her website, follow her on Facebook @TessGerritsen, or Twitter.
