If you are a parent or grandparent who likes lighthouses, you will not want to miss the chance for the young people in your life to meet author Angeli Perrow at Owls Head Light on Saturday, September 14th.
Maine children’s author Angeli Perrow will be signing copies of her popular book, “Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue,” from 11 am to 3 pm in the keeper’s house at Owls Head Light.
During the 194 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 springer 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.”
The book is based on actual events and is sure to delight young readers. Don’t miss the chance to talk with Angeli Perrow and to purchase signed copies 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.
Owls Head Light Station is home to the nonprofit American Lighthouse Foundation, who is responsible for the maintenance and preservation of the historic site. To learn more about the book signing, call (207) 594-4174.
