BEYOND BEAUPORT BOOK LAUNCH

YOU’RE INVITED…

BEYOND BEAUPORT BOOK LAUNCH

JULY 29 

6:30-8:30 PM

ROCKY NECK CULTURAL CENTER

GLOUCESTER, MA

**RSVP REQUIRED SEATING IS LIMITED. PLEASE RSVP BEFORE JULY 25.**

Join local author James Masciarelli to celebrate the launch of his novel, “Beyond Beauport”. The evening will include a presentation by James, opportunities for mingling, a book signing, wine & cheese, soft drinks, and a few surprises.

James’ discussion will include remarks about the journey he took to publication and fascinating little known facts about Gloucester’s seafaring characters of the past. James will also touch upon his novel’s main character, Shannon Clarke, and her mid-life quest for her seafaring ancestry. Her childhood dream of becoming a sea captain is revived when her long-lost Uncle Patrick comes to town with salty tales of their family’s connections to famous Gloucester sea captains and infamous pirates of the Caribbean. Shannon and her uncle take to the sea in Patrick’s brigantine in a voyage fraught with raw forces of nature, past traumas and present-day sea raiders. Their beliefs about family, identity and purpose are shaken to the core. James would be honored for you to join him for this special evening.

Seating is limited please RSVP today. Looking forward to seeing you!

FISH TALES ABOARD THE SCHOONER ADVENTURE!

And what a great bunch of fish tale story tellers! You may recall Greg Bover’s invitation from last week where the Gloucester Writer’s Center, Schooner Adventure, and Maritime Gloucester joined forces to bring us Gloucester’s Fish Tales held not at the writing center but from Webster Pier, on board the beautiful and welcoming Schooner Adventure. Maureen Aylward organized a fantastic line up of story tellers. I unfortunately was only able to stay for the first several story tellers but had the pleasure of listening to GMG FOB Ron Gilson, Bing McGilvray, Jim Masciarelli, and Jimmy Tarantino. I believe Henry Ferrini was filming the event so hopefully it will be available to see soon.
