Rice Public Library Presents:
New England's Haunted Lighthouses
October 31 · 6:00pm

Lighthouses are picturesque icons that remind us of our rich maritime history, but they also have a dark side. Lighthouses and ghost stories often seem to go hand in hand, as confirmed by the many horror stories and movies that have utilized lighthouses as their settings. This presentation will focus on macabre tales of New England’s coastal beacons, including the lovelorn spirit known as Ernie at Connecticut’s New London Ledge Light and the piano playing ghost of Maine’s Seguin Island Light. Also included will be accounts of strange happenings at America’s oldest light station, Boston Light, and at Portsmouth Harbor Light in New Castle, New Hampshire.

Jeremy D’Entremont has personally taken part in many lighthouse investigations by paranormal research groups. He calls himself an “open-minded skeptic,” and he’ll share some of his personal experiences. He has appeared on the Syfy Channel’s popular Ghost Hunters program. He has also appeared on the History Channel, Travel Channel, Public Television, and National Public Radio speaking about lighthouse history.

Jeremy is the author of more than 20 books, including The Lighthouse Handbook: New England, Great Shipwrecks of the Maine Coast, and Ocean-Born Mary: The Truth Behind a New Hampshire Legend. He’s the president and historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation and founder and chairman of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses. He runs a comprehensive website on New England lighthouses at www.newenglandlighthouses.net.

TTTom Clark's "Semi bi-monthly, sorta annual, things that ain't right" show
November 3 · 8:00pm

Comedian and actor, TTTom Clark, is bringing his Maine comedy character “C.L. Thomas” back to his home base in Kittery.

Clark describes his character as a gentle, old soul with New England honesty; “C.L. is an old Mainer, the kind you might have seen sitting around the wood stove in the back of the general store in a Norman Rockwell painting.  He’s not so much a story teller as he is a rambling old uncle with a comic viewpoint.” 

This will be Clark’s 4th time performing at the STAR Theatre. His show is interactive, engaging, and fun for the whole family. 

Sponsored by the The Dinnerhorn Restaurant and the Weathervane Restaurants.
