    OWLS HEAD — Author of Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue to appear at Owls Head Light on Saturday, Sept. 10. Maine children’s author Angeli Perrow will be signing copies of her book, Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue, on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 1 to 4 p.m., in the keeper’s house at Owls Head Light.

    “In the 197 year history of Owls Head Light Station, Spot the dog may very well be the light station’s most beloved story – an account that is both heroic and heartwarming,” said American Lighthouse Foundation, a news release.

    Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue is about Spot, a remarkable spaniel who lived at Owls Head Light with the keeper’s family in the 1930s,” says Angeli Perrow. “He learned to ring the fog bell to greet passing boats and came to the rescue of the Matinicus mailboat one stormy winter night.”

    “Don’t miss the chance to talk with Angeli Perrow and purchase a signed copy of Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue,” said the release.“While on site, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to tour Owls Head Lighthouse, which will be open to visitors for Maine Open Lighthouse Day, as will the interpretive center and gift shop inside the keeper’s house at the light station.”

    Owls Head Light Station is home to the nonprofit American Lighthouse Foundation, who is responsible for the maintenance and preservation of the historic site.
