On Wednesday, August 2 at 10:30 a.m., the Island Institute will host a panel discussion on women’s views and voices in Maine’s island communities.

The talk, “Making it Here: Women’s Views, Women’s Voices,” will be led by island residents and writers, Barbara Fernald, Courtney Naliboff, and Sandy Oliver, and moderated by Tom Groening, editor of The Working Waterfront.

Part of the Institute’s Summer Lecture Series, the one-hour talk is free and open to the public. All lecture series events take place in the fourth floor conference room at the Island Institute, 386 Main Street in Rockland, and include coffee and muffins.

The final presentation in the series will take place Wednesday, August 9th, and feature a talk by the Island Institute Community Energy team on island energy challenges and solutions.
