Second Thursdays At The Apprenticeshop

By The Apprenticeshop | Apr 07, 2014

On Thursday, April 10, The Apprenticeshop will host local author, Renny Stackpole, who will read from his recent book, Sea Letters.

As the title implies, the book is a compilation of letters of the Andrew Pinkham family, a seafaring family from  Nantucket. Set against the backdrop of the war of 1812, the Pinkham letters are a glimpse into the lives of Pinkham and his two sons Alexander and Reuben. The chronicle tells the often harrowing tales of life at sea, both in times of war and peace.

A native of Nantucket, Stackpole taught  history and served as curator at the Nantucket Historical Association. He moved to Maine in 1985, helped with the restoration of the schooner Bowdoin, and was the Director of the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport.

Join us on Thursday, April 10, 7:00 pm at 643 Main St. Rockland. Admission is $5.00 at the door.
