Town Talk Continues

The Talking continues at the Wiscasset Public Library on Wednesday April 19 at 3:00. This next Town Talk will be a recalling of stories of personalities often referred to as “local characters”. Many of these folks left us with fond and sometimes humorous memories of their times living here in the Wiscasset area. Come share and contribute with others this intriguing bit of the past.

The March Town Talk was an informative discussion of the Wiscasset Fire Society. Pictures, books and stories helped to shed light on this centuries old organization that was started by a group of businessmen to provide fire protection for their properties. The organization and some of the historical equipment still exists. There is much more to learn.

Town Talk takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 3:00 in the Wiscasset Public Library’s Fiction Room. Come join in the Town Talk.


IMG_1657  How to Cope After Death of Child in Sudden Accident Subject of Wiscasset Library Talk

A phone call from a highway patrol dispatcher is a call no parent ever wants to receive. It could mean a son or daughter has been injured or killed in an accident. Michelle Peele, former resident of Wiscasset and presently living in Alna, received that very call. Michelle finds herself on a grief journey that she knows will last a lifetime.

In this informative and emotional talk, Wednesday April 26 at the Wiscasset Library at 5:00 p.m., Michelle will talk candidly about her journey.

She will describe the details of the accident that took her daughter’s life, while explaining how she worked her way back to the “land of the living.”

Michelle will speak, answer questions and reach out to people who may be suffering or are walking in a fog of grief. She will speak about her book “Glimpses of God.” An added benefit will be an open discussion of organ donation and its importance. April is Organ Donor Awareness Month and falls into this narrative well.

This will be a very personal and loving talk that could change and enrich your life and the lives of others.

The library is located at 21 High Street in Wiscasset. This talk is sponsored by The Friends of the Wiscasset Library.
