E.B. White Open Mic, co-hosted by Carver Memorial Library

July 11 @ 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm


After visiting Maine during childhood summers, writer and children’s author E.B. White eventually settled in Brooklin, Maine. On the 124th anniversary of E.B. White’s birth, join the Penobscot Marine Museum and Carver Memorial Library for an afternoon celebrating the author. Visit the FAINT ENDEAVOR, a sailing dinghy once owned by White, and enjoy the museum’s new exhibits about the quintessential Maine boat, the peapod. From 3pm to 5pm, enjoy special children’s activities and participate in reading excerpts from Charlotte’s Web. Then from 5pm-6:30pm, listen to fans read their favorite E. B. White passages, from his New Yorker days to his classic children’s tales. Bring your own favorite reading and a picnic dinner, and join in the fun! Register here to receive a reminder email.
