Book Signing at Sherman’s in Bar Harbor
July 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Ed Crockett, a Portland-based state representative, president of Capt’n Eli’s Soda and author of “The Ghosts of Walter Crockett,” will sign books at Sherman’s Maine Coast Book Shop in Bar Harbor on July 30 from 10 a.m. to noon.
“The Ghosts of Walter Crockett,” published by Islandport Press, captures the joy of youth, love of family and a quest for redemption as they play out against a backdrop of poverty, uncertainty and the ever-present specter of an alcoholic and homeless father whose flaws, choices and fate haunt a young man and tear at his confidence.
With love, compassion and the clarity of time, Crockett’s harrowing tale takes readers to a side of 20th century Portland that has always existed in the shadows of lighthouses, lobsters and sunsets, but is rarely explored in print.
