Li­brary to screen doc­u­men­tary about Dorch­ester sea level rise

The Star Democrat - - LOCAL -

EAS­TON — The Tal­bot County Free Li­brary at 6 p.m. Mon­day, Dec. 10, will show the film “High Tide in Dorch­ester” on its big, pro­fes­sional screen.

This doc­u­men­tary was cre­ated to fos­ter a con­ver­sa­tion about sea level rise and ero­sion caused by cli­mate change, and lever­age that con­ver­sa­tion into ac­tion.

In land area, Dorch­ester County is the fourth largest of Mary­land’s 23 coun­ties, but it is ex­pected to drop to the 14th largest by 2100 — or sooner — as global warm­ing causes wa­ters to rise.

“High Tide in Dorch­ester” is a cre­ation of the team of Sandy Can­non-Brown, Dave Harp and Tom Hor­ton. Can­non-Brown will be on hand at the li­brary to an­swer ques­tions and dis­cuss the film. If sched­ules per­mit, Harp and Hor­ton will at­tend, as well.

All li­brary pro­grams are free and open to the pub­lic. Pa­trons do not need to pre-reg­is­ter to at­tend this screen­ing. For more in­for­ma­tion, call the li­brary at 410-822-1626 or visit www.tcfl.org. ----On­line: www.high­t­idein­dorch­ester.org

The Tal­bot County Free Li­brary will screen the doc­u­men­tary “High Tide in Dorch­ester” on Mon­day, Dec. 10. In the photo, Tom Hor­ton stands where he played ball as a child.
