Mark your calendars for this Tuesday, May 24th at 6:30 p.m. to hear the author speak about her latest novel, Boar Island. Set in Bar Harbor, the author continues the adventures of her indomitable character and heroine, Anna Pigeon. In this novel, Anna has a new job as a Parker Ranger at the beautiful Acadia National Park. She discovers the worst that nature can do to people is never as terrifying as what people can do to each other. But human cruelty comes up against a resourceful group of women and Anna tries to prevent a cyber-stalking case from turning lethal.

What are people saying about Barr and Boar Island?

“Barr lays down a riveting mystery and permeates the pages with scrupulous descriptions of Anna’s struggle with the cold, with the night, and with the terror and fear of not rescuing her friends.”— Library Journal (starred review)

“Barr’s gift for depicting breathtaking scenery elevates the story, as does Anna’s complex,
ever-evolving personality.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
