On October 28th Acadia Senior College will host author and art critic Carl Little at its Food for Thought program. Little co-authored his most recent book, Art of Acadia, with his brother David, a painter.

In an hour-long slide presentation, Little will present “A Sampling” from this publication, which coincides with the Centennial Celebration of Acadia National Park. Little describes the book as “the most comprehensive survey of the art inspired by the park and its surroundings.”
