Island is mystery setting

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Author Moe Claire will give a talk about her debut mystery “A Fickle Tide” at Southwest Harbor Public Library on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 5:30 pm.

“In the book, the quiet of the winter season is shattered on the fictional Pyke Island, where the rugged beauty of the landscape is matched by the stubborn independence and strong community of the people who call it home,” organizers said.

“A Fickle Tide” is the first in a planned series of mysteries.
