Jamie Wyeth’s connection to Monhegan dates to the late 1950s, when he first went there with his father, and he has continued to paint there ever since. His connection to fellow artist Rockwell Kent goes back nearly as far. Early in his career Wyeth bought several pen and ink drawings by Kent used as the sources for his illustrations to Moby Dick, one of Kent’s most renowned book illustration projects. Subsequently, Wyeth bought several of Kent’s paintings from his first period on the island around 1907.

From a collection of more than 22,000 articles and stories of the Maine Woods, author Steve Pinkham (Mountains of Maine: Intriguing Stories Behind Their Names) selected the most exciting tales of hunting and fishing, animal encounters, lumbering, canoe trips, and even a few ghost stories for his new book. The tales range from 1849 to 1913 and were written or handed down from men and women who traveled to northern Maine and wrote about their experiences in the backwoods. Join us right before Halloween to hear Steve tell a handful of the stories, and read from the book.
