Authors of “Caught” to speak at the DMC
The University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center (DMC) will host a book signing and conversation by the authors of “Caught. Time. Place. Fish.” on Tuesday, November 14, at noon.
A collaboration between fisherman Glen Libby and photographer Antonia Small, “Caught” is an account of the beauty, fragility and profound change that characterizes fishing, fishing families, and the communities who depend on them in the twenty-first century. Based in the tiny village of Port Clyde, Maine, but reaching globally,” Caught” chronicles the individual and community efforts to transform a way of life for all who depend on our planet’s bounty.
During this lunchtime event, Libby and Small will share images and stories of the effort to restore Port Clyde’s small boat fishing fleet and to establish the first Community Supported Fishery (CSF) in the country.
“Fishing and fishing communities are an integral part of Maine’s identity and economy,” observed DMC Director Heather Leslie. “Many Darling Center-based researchers and students are working on topics that are closely linked with marine fisheries, and particularly related to the health of the ecosystems and human communities on which they depend. We are delighted to host Toni and Glen, and to share their work with the community.”
“Caught” was awarded the 2017 John N. Cole Award for Maine-Themed Non-fiction from the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event. “Caught” retails for $40.00 plus tax, for a total of $42.20. Cash, check and credit cards will be accepted.
The DMC is located at 193 Clarks Cove Road in Walpole. The talk will take place in Brooke Hall on the lower waterfront campus. Please bring a brown bag lunch. The DMC will provide beverages and cookies.
