Island Journal 2018
The 2018 Island Journal explores the theme of "Waterfront Innovators, Innovative Waterfronts," and features stories on Luke Holden, the founder and operator of the Luke's Lobster chain of restaurants; the revival of Bucksport after the paper mill closed; the successes islands and rural communities have found in bringing high-speed internet to residents; and the cutting-edge research being done by the MDI Biological Laboratory. The issue also includes an essay on Rachel Carson and the inspiration she found on Southport Island; a trip to the Beaver Islands in Lake Michigan; a look at how islanders manage emergency services; a first-person account of how Vinalhaven's men's book club was established; an artist profile of Abe Goodale; and a short story that takes the reader to a very cold and dangerous place. This Island Journal also reproduces selections from the Farnsworth's Art Museum collection and the stark photography of Jeffrey Becton.
