Bar Harbor, ME: Joe Devenney has been photographing the Maine coast for thirty-seven years, and Ken Textor has been writing about it equally as long. Separately – and occasionally on assignment together – they have turned over many stones in this varied 3,000-mile-long coastline, seeking out and recording its moods, seasons, and secrets. Now they are sharing their rich accumulation of images and insights in the recently published “The Hidden Coast of Maine.”

Lovers of coastal Maine will not want to miss Mr. Textor’s appearance and book signing at the Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, June 10 at 7 p.m.

This special event is co-sponsored by Sherman’s book store, and copies of the book will be available for purchase at the Jesup that evening with a percentage of the sale price donated to the library.

Ken Textor has ranged the Maine coast by land and sea since the late 1970s. He is a contributing editor for Down East magazine and has been boating columnist for the Maine Sunday Telegram, contributing editor for several magazines, and managing editor for Boating Digest. His writing has appeared in WoodenBoat, This Old House, Boating World, Professional Boatbuilder, and other publications too numerous to count. Ken is the author of two previous books, “Innocents Afloat” and “The New Book of SAIL Trim.”
