Comments: My name is Tim Caverly and I was a Maine park ranger for 32 years, 18 of which I was supervisor of New England's Wild and Scenic River "The Allagash. I have five books out and would be pleased to visit with Kiwanis clubs to discuss our literacy project. The title of my presentation is "Allagash Tails and Tales"
This is a multi-media presentation intended for any school, library, civic organization who would like to have a discussion about our Allagash Tails Collection of books, and one of our nation's premiere Wild and Scenic Rivers.

Narrated by author and former Waterway Supervisor Tim Caverly, the show includes music, scenic and historic photographs as well as stories detailing Tim's personal experiences while living in the woods. Canoeing down the river, people will experience the Allagash in a whole new way. Tim is also available to do readings from one of the "Tails" books.

Accompanied by the artistry of Franklin Manzo Jr, the program has been very well received. By the summer of 2013 Tim had provided 108 programs and reached out to over 3500 students. The talk at schools is in addition to countless libraries, civic organizations, retirement communities and sporting organizations where Tim has presented. But talking about the books isn't enough for the Allagash Tails guys. To date, with the support of the King Foundation, banks, health organizations as well as Rotaries, Kiwanis and Lion's Clubs there have been over 1200 books donated to 111 Maine schools.

The presentation normally last from 45 to 60 minutes, but we are willing to modify it to fit time spaces available. We are now scheduling programs through out New England for 2014. If you would like more information or to arrange a visit, please e-mail us through our website site at www.allagashtails.com, e-mail to kgoldenr@myfairpoint.net or call Tim at (207) 907-0517.
