2018 Island Journal
$14.95

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.
