BAR HARBOR — Visit a future of genetic manipulation and implant technology with Bar Harbor author Heather Hayden at the Jesup Memorial Library on Thursday, May 28, at 7 p.m.

“Augment,” which was released in March, is Hayden’s first published book. It is a young adult science fiction novella that tells the story of Viki, a girl who loves to run but relies on implants to move. When Viki’s implants begin to fail, she and her friend Halle must find those responsible for the failure, or she may lose the ability to run forever.

Hayden wrote “Augment” as her senior project at College of the Atlantic. “Augment was my way of combining all three of my passions: creative writing, genetics and computer science,” she said. A soon-to-be graduate, she is already working on her next book, a fantasy novel, which she hopes to release in the fall.

When not writing, Hayden spends her days reading, enjoying the outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and baking.

Copies will be available to purchase at the event and at amazon.com. Contact the Jesup at 288-4245, or info@jesuplibrary.org.
