Author Peter MacDonald Blachly will be book signing his memoir The Stone From Halfway Rock at the 2017 Beyond the Sea Book Festival at Lincolnville Beach, on Saturday, July 22nd, 10:30-12:30. 

About The Stone From Halfway Rock:
Maine summers of the 1950s and '60s, seen through the experiences of a young boy skilled in sailing Casco Bay. This collection of vignettes and adventures brings the insights of growing awareness with the discovery of coastal communities and their often challenging shoreline. Included is the author's story of encountering the tragic history of Malaga Island and its neighboring island, where he lived and explored during formative years and where he has returned today.

About the Author:

Peter has been crafting stories, song lyrics, and English prose for many years. He has written two memoirs. One, The Stone from Halfway Rock–recently published by Polar Bear Press–relates his childhood adventures on the coast of Maine.


"Luminous, lyrical, Peter Blachly's stories of childhood summers in Maine are a wondrous reminder of what's important in life. He has me laughing, weeping, visualizing seals and summer storms, remembering the smell of the sea air and promising myself to love the simple." -Chellis Glendinning, author of My Name is Chellis & I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization​.
