    If you’ve never been to a local craft fair, here’s one check out at the Rockland Emblem Club at 210 Rankin Street. The most interesting people making the most interesting stuff you can’t find anywhere else is its real appeal, as seen in such past stories as this and this.  Starting at 9 a.m. and going to 2 p.m., this craft fair features more than 40 tables of crafts from local artisans. The kitchen will be open for lunch as well as a bake table with homemade pies, cookies, candies and fudges. FMI: Details.

    Three wild and scenic films to catch

    Sunday, November 14—Virtual


    The Midcoast Conservancy and Coastal Mountains Land Trust are hosting a live, virtual event to screen eight films that will appeal to outdoor lovers and environmentalists from 4 to 6 p.m. I just did a write-up on three not-to-miss films a story this week. Pictured above: “24 Leeches,” a “tribute to a father’s best friend and adventure partner, his 10-year-old son.”  Ticket holders will have access to the films online five days after the festival starts.
