Author Talk and Book Signing: Tom Wessels “Granite, Fire and Fog: The Natural and Cultural History of Acadia”

Date: Thu. 15 Jun, 2017 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour

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.
