Southwest Harbor Public Library Presents: Maine at Work

Together, with the Maine Humanities Council and the Southwest Harbor & Tremont Chamber of Commerce, Southwest Harbor Public Library will be hosting a performance called Maine at Work on Tuesday evening, September 30, 5:30pm. The performance will take place in the Holmes Room at the Library.

Are you wondering what the employment situation is like in your town? How about statewide? Most importantly, what do YOU think about the prospects for work in Maine? Maine at Work takes this hot topic and turns it into a wide-ranging performance based on historical documents and characters, humor, little-known facts, thought-provoking tales (tall and otherwise), and perspectives from real Mainers. When the performance is finished, actor David Greenham will lead the audience in a conversation about jobs and employment in their town. There is no attempt to change opinions or to reach consensus; the goal is simply to encourage the audience to reflect on and share their thoughts about what they have heard and seen.

All are invited to this thought provoking performance. For more information call the Library at 244-7065.
