BREWER — The Brewer Public Library will host a reading by Maine children’s author, Charlotte Crowder, 10:30 a.m.- 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 100 South Main St. She will be reading from her latest release, “A Fine Orange Bucket.”
The book, published by North Country Press of Unity, for ages 4-10, takes place in several Down East locations. The tale begins with Percy Stone, of Prospect Harbor, who finds his very special orange bucket at a well-known Maine marine store, but then the adventure continues as the bucket travels down the coast. The book captures the Maine vernacular and young readers are introduced to sailing, many varieties of sea creatures, and lobster fishing.
Charlotte Crowder lives and writes on the coast of Maine.
