Special Presentation and Book Signing
Saturday, December 14th, 11 am to 3 pm
A Special Presentation and Book Signing with Author Jan Gilley Light on Jib Island
This is a novel for young people and adults alike.In the early 1920s, the Bartons were a lightkeeping family on Jib Island several miles off the Maine coast. The adventures of the four Barton children and their parents in this isolated place are snapshots of the real lives of those who kept the lights burning to make travel safer for the many boats that sailed the cold and treacherous Maine waters. Visits from a very capable and loving grandmother and a spunky itinerant school teacher add excitement, as do the accidents of nature that the family must manage.
Presented at the Maine Lighthouse Museum, One Park Drive in Rockland.
