An Evening with Bernd Heinrich
May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Internationally renowned author, field biologist, illustrator, and long distance runner Bernd Heinrich will appear at the Chesterville Center Meeting House. After a childhood in the forest of post-war northern Europe, then Weld and Fairfield, Maine, and an academic career spanning the continent, Heinrich has retired to his true home, a forest in Weld. He will reflect on the significance of Franklin County in his long life and entertain questions from the audience on any of his works. Having set numerous distance running records and authored 2 dozen books on various nature topics as well as on running, the conversation could range broadly. “The more unusual the question, the better,” he smiled, when asked about potential topics.
The Chesterville Center Union Meeting House is located at 3 Borough Road, Chesterville, Maine. Admission is free with donations always welcome. The building is ADA accessible. Refreshments will be available. FMI call 207/320-5022.
