Hi Everyone,

The Gray Public Library is hosting Maine author Mac Smith, Saturday, October 8th @ 1pm.
Mac's new book is "Disaster at the Bar Harbor Ferry".

We hope if you're in the area, you'll stop by.

Disaster at the Bar Harbor Ferry tells the true story of what was, at the time, Maine's deadliest maritime disaster.  The story takes place in an era when a ferry was the only means of travel to the new, glamorous, and growing resort of Bar Harbor.  The heartbreaking tale beings with the arrival of a train, overcrowded with passengers anxious to be among the first to cross the bay. Their rush for the ferry turned a casual summer Sunday outing into a scene of chaos, tragedy, death and heroism. The book not only tells the complete story of the people and the events of that fateful day, but of a time, and way of life, long gone by and nearly forgotten.
Mac Smith is a  Navy veteran of the First Gulf  War and former news reporter for the
Bar Harbor Times. Mac lives in small village in Maine.
