Senator Angus King Visits People Plus Dec. 17!

Maine Senator Angus S. King Jr. will appear at People Plus on Monday, December 17 at 9:30 am, to sign copies of A Senator’s Eye, his new book that features images and captions about his work as a U.S. Senator.

A Senator’s Eye: Celebrating Maine, Washington, and the Joys of Scraping the Windshield is a book of personal photographs that provides a rare insider’s look at the workaday life of the senator, whether attending high-level meetings in Washington, DC, or watching a glorious sunrise off the coast of Maine. By agreement, Islandport Press, the book’s publisher, will direct any earnings King would have received from book sales directly to Good Shepherd Food Bank of Auburn.

“What I try to do with these pictures—and their captions—is to convey a sense of my dual life as both a Senator and an unabashed fan of my beautiful state,” King said. “Each shot tells a small story, sometimes from inside ‘the room where it happens’ and sometimes standing alone marveling at a Maine sunset. Together, they capture a personal view of places and events from a somewhat unusual vantage point.”

King (I-Maine) was originally elected as an independent to the U.S. Senate in 2012 filling a seat once occupied by Edmund Muskie, George Mitchell, and Olympia Snowe, and reelected in 2018. King also served two terms as the governor of Maine. He has five children and lives in Brunswick, Maine, with his wife, Mary. In his free time, he enjoys exploring the Maine outdoors—either on his Harley or with his family in their camper.
