A Dangerous New World: Maine Voices on the Climate Crisis is an anthology of work by 65 writers and 27 artists who responded to a call for essays, poetry and art work on the effects of climate change – on their lives, their communities, their families, and their futures. The resulting collection is a many-layered and complex mosaic of voices and visions, of thoughtful appraisals, careful observations, emotional responses, and scientific analyses. Edited by Meghan Sterling and Kathleen Sullivan with a Foreword by Governor Janet Mills.

Participating contributors (many of them Freeporters!) include Jefferson Navicky, Erin Covey-Smith, Kate Olson, Katrina VanDusen, Anna Dibble, Colin Cheney, Kathleen Sullivan, and Vanessa Nesvig.

“Scientists have been trying to alert us to the unfolding climate crisis for decades. In A Dangerous New World, Maine’s artists join the fray, elucidating what is at stake for our state, its people, and their way of life in words that reach the hearts as well as the mind.” – Colin Woodard

Think coloring is just for kids? Think again!

Why all of this fuss over coloring books? First of all, it’s just plain fun! But current day research also indicates that coloring de-stresses and lessens anxiety in adults, providing a healthy break from our highly scheduled, technology-dependent lives.

The Freeport Community Library is providing a dedicated space every Wednesday morning for anyone 18 and older who would like to drop-in at 10:30AM and color for an hour or so. The library provides an assortment of materials including highly detailed coloring book pages for you to choose from, colored pencils, and a large assortment of crayons. Or, bring your own coloring book pages to copy and share with the group!

This event is free and open to the public. For questions or directions to the library, please call 865-3307 or visit freeportlibrary.com.
