Negotiate a great evening with Sen. George Mitchell (Tue. 7 Jul, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

BAR HARBOR—Sen. George Mitchell has received many awards and honors for his work in the United States and across the globe, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor given by the US government. Sen. Mitchell will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, July 7 at 7 p.m. with his book, “The Negotiator: Reflections on an American Life.”Sen. Mitchell was our United States Senator for fifteen years, spending six as the Senate Majority Leader; he was voted "the most respected member" of the Senate for six consecutive years. After retiring from the Congress, he was appointed special advisor to the president of the United States and the secretary of state for economic initiatives in Ireland as well as the chairman of the Sharm el-Sheikh International Fact-Finding Committee to examine the continuing crisis between the Israelis and the Palestinians.  In Sen. Mitchell’s book, he shares his stories of growing up in Maine, his years in the Senate, working to bring peace to Northern Ireland and the Middle East, and what he’s learned about the art of negotiation during every stage of his life. Buffalo News writes “Not many authors can use their life as an American as a subtitle for a memoir. But when you’re a former federal judge, Senate majority leader, leader of the peace talks in Northern Ireland, chairman of the board of the Disney Corp. and investigator of illegal use of stimulants by baseball players, it seems a perfect fit.” The Bangor Daily News notes his memoir “includes many lighthearted and oddball anecdotes not normally associated with high-profile conflict resolution and political debate.”This event is co-sponsored by Sherman’s book store, and copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Jesup that night, with a percentage of the sale price donated to the library.For more information, contact the library at 207-288-4245 or email info@jesuplibrary.org.

Science Fiction Star Soars to the Jesup (Thu. 9 Jul, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

BAR HARBOR—Kim Stanley Robinson has been called one of the greatest living science-fiction writers and even one of the most important political writers working in American today. Some of his 20-plus books have been New York Times bestsellers and winners of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards. Robinson will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, July 9 at 7 p.m. for the launch of his new book “Aurora.” This is the very first event for “Aurora”—do not miss the opportunity to be the first to see Robinson with his new book. “Aurora” follows an intergenerational starship as it draws near to the planet that may serve as a new home world for those on board. But the journey has brought unexpected changes and their best laid plans may not be enough for them to survive. Booklist writes that the book is science fiction “the way it’s meant to be written: technical, scientific, with big ideas and a fully-realized society.” Kirkus adds, “Robinson’s latest well-researched novel exposes the fundamental flaws in one of science fiction’s most beloved tropes.” Robinson is the best-selling author of the “Mars” trilogy along with the critically acclaimed “Forty Signs of Rain,” “The Years of Rice and Salt,” and “2312.” In 2008, he was named a "Hero of the Environment" by Time magazine. Robinson works with the Sierra Nevada Research Institute.  This event is co-sponsored by Sherman’s book store, and copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Jesup that night, with a percentage of the sale price donated to the library.For more information, contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or email info@jesuplibrary.org.###

FREE Down East Center Ring Circus Band Concert (Fri. 10 Jul, 2015 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm)

Barnum and Bailey may be retiring the elephants, but the band will always be center ring at the circus - at least if the Down East Center Ring Circus Band has anything to say about it! The Down East Center Ring Circus Band Concert returns to the Bucksport Performing Arts Center “Big Top” for the 19th year on Friday, July 10, 2015, 7:30 pm, at the Bucksport Middle School, 100 Miles Lane, in Bucksport.   This free family concert under the imaginary “big top” is a musical highlight of the summer. Every year, a 50-piece band of professional musicians, music educators, retired military band musicians, and members of local community bands from Maine to California and Canada present a concert of rarely heard circus music led by Conductor Gene Nichols, Professor of Music at the University of Maine-Machias. An incomparable showman and educator, Nichols was the director of music and band director for the Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus. The concert also features the always entertaining Anah Shrine Clowns.  The musicians all volunteer their time for two rehearsals and the performance.   The evening serves as a benefit concert to raise money for music scholarships for students in Hancock, Penobscot and Washington counties. All donations received at the concert are used to fund the scholarships. Last year, 48 middle and high school students received scholarships. A music scholarship can change an aspiring student musician’s life. After her first experience at music camp last summer, an 8th grader wrote, “Along with playing my viola in Symphonic Orchestra and piano, I met tons of new kids like me, played amazing challenging music….Music means so much to me but can be quite expensive and by awarding me your scholarship, it has helped my family a lot.” Another student wrote that the scholarship “will push me further to try very hard and succeed as a musician.”   The concert and fundraising effort were conceived by Dr. E. Donald Blodgett, retired educator and accomplished trombonist who resides in Orland and Milwaukee, WI. Since retirement, his mission has been to further music education for young persons in Maine where he grew up and received his early music education. Since the first concert in 1997, $37,000in music scholarships has been awarded. Scholarships may be used for music lessons, music camp tuition, or to purchase or repair musical instruments. The number of applications increases every year, so the need is great!   Special program support is also provided by the Town of Bucksport, the Bucksport Area Cultural Arts Society, the Bucksport Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and individuals.   For additional information, contact Ann Boudreaux at ann.e.boudreaux@gmail.com
