(Thu. 15 Jun, 2017 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Ecologist, naturalist and hiker Tom Wessels explores the natural and cultural history of Acadia National Park in his book “Granite, Fire and Fog: The Natural and Cultural History of Acadia.” Join him at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, June 15 at 7 p.m. as he explores what has made Acadia such a unique destination. Wessels attributes the park’s popularity—and its unusual beauty—to the way in which earth, air, fire and water—in the form of glacially scoured granite, winter winds, fire and ocean fog—have converged to create a landscape that can be found nowhere else.  Wessels invites readers to investigate the natural history of Mount Desert Island, along with the unique cultural story it gave rise to. Books will be on sale that night courtesy of Sherman’s Books. This event is also co-sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.

The Sagrada Familia and Barcelona Talk with Ross Dinyari
(Fri. 23 Jun, 2017 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

Join Ross Dinyari for a talk and slideshow about his recent visit to the The Basilica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia, the cathedral designed by Antonio Gaudi, in Barcelona at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, June 23 at 7 p.m.    Dinyari says “neither the Great Wall of China, nor the pyramids of Cairo, or the Opera House of Sydney, nor Taj Mahal, the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, and even Hermitage, or Notre dame de Paris, or other stupendous edifices we have  visited,  had been so inspirational and leaving us as awestruck,  as entering Sagrada Familia.” Construction on the Sagrada Familia began in 1883 and still continues today and is not expected to be completed until 2026. The towers and steeples reach skyward beyond the ceiling of the church, which at 200 feet tall is a marvel of engineering and creative architecture. The incredible columns of unconventional design and shapes depict a massive forest supporting its canopy.    Dinyari, who was born in Iran, came to the United States in 1962 to attend Michigan State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in mathematics. After working in technical jobs for companies in Milwaukee, Detroit and Houston, he founded RDA Service and Manufacturing, an international engineering and project management company which worked with oil, chemical, and heavy industries in more than 42 countries. He travels extensively with his wife, but they live in Maine.   For more information, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or [email protected]
