Long-time Orono residents Marisue and John W. Pickering began publishing their respective travel writing and travel photography a number of years ago. Their decades-long experiences as educators and their shared interest in exploring Maine’s historical and cultural heritage as well as its natural world have come together in a unique travel guide, Maine – Beyond the Usual. Published in 2013 by Maine Authors Publishing in Rockland. Maine – Beyond the Usual takes travelers to 50 “beyond the usual” Maine sites, each presented through John’s photographs and Marisue’s short essays. Join the Pickerings at the Orono Public Library from 6:00p.m. to 6:40p.m. on June 21st!
