Date: 12/7/2018
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 7:30 PM
Description:
 Local journalist and owner of Penobscot Bay Press, Nat Barrows, will share from his new book, Through My Eyes: 50 Years of Maine Community Journalism, at the Blue Hill Public Library on Friday, December 7th at 6:00 PM.

Through My Eyes gathers 50 years of Nat Barrows’ personal reflections on newspaper publishing, life in small towns, the natural world, family and more. As publisher and editor for Penobscot Bay Press, beginning in 1968, fostering strong communities has been his main focus in his three weekly community newspapers. He says, “The message is this—find the common ground, talk and work together so the wounds can heal while divisions fade, so a sense of community purpose and individual joy can be illuminated.”

Nat was honored as the 2007 Journalist of the Year by the Maine Press Association and named to MPA’s Hall of Fame in 2018. Books will be available for sale and signing. This event is sponsored by the library, there is no charge, and everyone is welcome. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
