Midcoast author Richard Grant will be guest speaker for the kickoff of the Lincolnville Community Library’s Fall Presentation & Concert series Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. at the library, 208 Main St./routes 173/52. Music for the evening will be provided by Meteora.

Grant was born in Norfolk, Va.; attended the University of Virginia; and served in the U.S. Coast Guard. He is the author of 10 novels, most recently “Another Green World” (Alfred A. Knopf/Random House). A Lincolnville resident, he is a contributing editor of Down East magazine and a winner of the New England Press Award. He is noted locally for leading the annual caroling at Lincolnville Beach during Christmas-by-the-Sea.

Meteora leaves no musical stone unturned, performing an eclectic array of original songs and folk ballads, as well as traditional songs and original arrangements. Tight three-part harmony is the trio’s signature.

Kat Logan and Jim Loney are a singer/songwriter couple from Friendship. Logan has a clear, inviting voice and plays piano, accordion, banjo and guitar. She has performed folk, country and blues music throughout New England for the past 20 years. Loney also plays guitar and banjo and has performed Delta blues and R&B for many years, as well as Cuban son music. The trio is completed by Will Brown of Lincolnville, who has been playing and singing folk music around campfires and in concert since 1963.

The evening begins at 7 p.m. sharp. Advance reserved tickets are $10. For more information, call Rosey Gerry at 975-5432.
