Poet and artist Betsy Headley of Swanville invites one and all to a First Book Celebration Sunday, Oct. 29, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Abbott Room of Belfast Free Library, 106 High St.

The event marks the introduction of Headley’s newly published book of poetry, “Something Is Always Left.” She will do a short reading at 3 p.m.

“Something Is Always Left” explores Headley’s winding journey through Iowa tornados, saddle shoe struggles, subways in Japan, loss of grandparents, musings on parenthood, aging, spiritual peace and world reflection. Nature is a frequent source of strength and guidance.

Light refreshments will be served, and copies of the Maine Authors Publishing & Cooperative book will be available (checks and cash accepted).
