Maine children’s author Angeli Perrow will be signing copies of her popular book, Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue, on Saturday, September 9 from 1 to 4 pm in the keeper’s house at Owls Head Light.
In the over 190 year history of Owls Head Light Station, “Spot” the dog may very well be the light station’s most beloved story – an account that is both heroic and heartwarming.
“Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue is about Spot, a remarkable spaniel who lived at Owls Head Light with the keeper’s family in the 1930s,” says Angeli Perrow. “He learned to ring the fog bell to greet passing boats and came to the rescue of the Matinicus mailboat one stormy winter night.”
Don’t miss the chance to talk with Angeli Perrow and purchase a signed copy of Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue. While on site, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to tour Owls Head Lighthouse, which will be open to visitors for Maine Open Lighthouse Day, as will the interpretive center and gift shop inside the keeper’s house at the light station.
