In an event presented by the Hope Library, Eva Murray will read from some of her recent work on Zoom at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 20.

Eva lives in Matinicus. She has written three books, “Well Out to Sea,” (2010), “Island Schoolhouse” (2012) and “Island Birthday (2015) and provides essays for a number of publications, including The Free Press, Pen Bay Pilot and Maine Boats Homes & Harbors. Those who know Eva know that she can bake, drive a truck and like many people who live on an island 20 miles off the Maine coast, can do lots of things the rest of us would probably hire someone else to do. As treasurer of the Matinicus Island Library Association, Eva understands the value of small libraries to their community.
