Islanders enjoy a long list of traditions and this is one of them-The Color and Pages of Peaks-where art show meets book signing fair, and then live music and a wine and cheese reception make it even better.

Friday, July 8th from 6-8 pm at the historic TEIA Clubhouse with the wraparound porch and killer views of Diamond Passage. Hop on your bike, or onto the ferry, and attend this lovely event.

Written by Patricia Erikson, Peaks Island Press offers behind-the-scenes glimpses of a vibrant, literary community perched on Peaks Island, two miles off the coast of the beautiful and award-winning city of Portland, Maine. If you haven’t already, you may subscribe in the upper right corner at
