Author Hope Rowan: “Ten Days in Acadia” on Tues., July 11

Join Mount Desert Island map maker and author Hope Rowan as she speaks about her recent book “Ten Days in Acadia: A Kid’s Hiking Guide to Mount Desert Island” at the Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, July 11 at 7 p.m.

Rowan was inspired to write the guidebook after teaching kids mapping skills, and seeing how excited they were to use their new skills to get around in the great outdoors. Rowan says, “Because ‘Ten Days in Acadia’ is written for kids to read, they can be the ones to pick out the hike for the day, or inform their parents that there’s a steep section of trail coming up, and be empowered by that knowledge they’ve gained.”

Books will be on sale that night courtesy of co-sponsor of Sherman’s Books. Bar Harbor Bank and Trust is also a co-sponsor of this event. For more information contact the Jesup at 207-288-4245 or
