Lincolnville — Author Ronni Arno Blaisdell will be guest speaker at the Lincolnville Community Library’s last fall presentation for 2017 Wednesday evening, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. at the library, 208 Main St./routes 173/52 in Lincolnville Center.

As Ronnie Arno, Blaisdell is the author of the middle-grade novels “Ruby Reinvented, “Dear Poppy” and “Molly in the Middle”; and co-author of “Best. Night Ever” (all from Simon & Schuster/Aladdin). She teaches English at the Watershed School in Camden and has been the author-in-residence at Islesboro Central School, where she worked with middle school students as they wrote their own novels.

Blaisdell received her bachelor's degree from Emerson College in Boston. Now she lives on the Midcoast with her husband, two daughters and two dogs. When not writing, Blaisdell said she stalks her kids for story ideas, kayaks and eats chocolate (not usually at the same time).

The concert portion of the program will be presented by Sean Mencher, who moved to Maine from Austin, Texas, in 1994, where he has pursued his music career full-time. His unusual thumb-pickin’ guitar style of boogie and swing has taken him from Carnegie Hall to an appearance on “Conan O’Brien” and to Lincoln Center.

Mencher has worked for Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Ronnie Dawson, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Billy Lee Riley, Rosie Flores, Sonny Burgess, Dig Wayne (Buzz And The Flyers), Al Hawkes, and Hank Williams III.

The program begins at 7 p.m. sharp Tickets, available in advance, are $10. For more information, call Rosey Gerry at 975-5432.
