Allagash Tails author, Tim Caverly will be appearing at community events, schools, libraries and events throughout New England. In order to Learn more about Maine's Wild and Scenic River, the author and "Allagash Tails", please join us. Look for our booth 'under the little red canoe' where we attend fairs and events .
Program 1) Allagash-New England’s Wild River: Narrated by author and humorist Tim Caverly; the show includes music as well as scenic and historic photos from our ‘northern forest.’ Spectators will canoe the world-famous river, discover forgotten logging history and learn about Native American archaeology. Hear first-hand about the lore, legends, and characters that Tim experienced during his 32-years while a Maine Park Ranger.
Program 2) An Allagash Haunting-A Radio Classic : A damping cloak of darkness approaches and brings a new meaning to the old saying “in the eye of the storm…Canoe with Olivia as she canoes in the worst storm ever… Through ‘an over the air’ broadcast Listeners will hear snapping campfires, ghostly music and the call of a loon while over 120 scenic and historic pictures display on screen. Travel along with a family as they paddle a wild river and as some say, 'back into time.'
Program 3) Crossed Paths-A wilderness romance. As children, growing up in Baxter State Park, Tim and Susan King Caverly's paths crossed while they hiked around and over mile high Mt. Katahdin. However, the two never met until one fall day at college. Join in on their predestined journey to begin a life together in the Maine woods.
Program 4) “So You Think You Know Maine!.” DISCOVER the birth place of Disney’s Bambi, northern forest ice caves, abandoned railroads, petrographs, and TALES which can only be described as CLASSIC MAINE.
Program 5) "Christmas in Cornville." In our latest power point presentation for all ages, travel back to 1953 when Tim Caverly attended a one-room school in Cornville, Maine. While the story is read aloud, 68 slides pan across the screen to provide the audience with a full experience of a New England Christmas. Released in December of 2018, the show has been well received at schools, retirement communities and libraries. Blizzards and antics found in the tale are the perfect introduction to the holiday season. We are now scheduling for the 2019.
**Power Point Programs for the classroom**
*Pre-k to kindergarten: This 30-minute talk introduces our book ‘Andy’s Surprise’ and uses colorful images to tell the story behind the story. The program includes an illustrated reading of the book.
