Capt. Linda Greenlaw Wessel, the only female swordfishing boat captain on the east coast of the USA, will talk about her life at sea on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House.

She has written three best-selling books about life as a commercial fisher: "The Hungry Ocean," "The Lobster Chronicles," and "All Fishermen are Liars," and she was featured in "The Perfect Storm." With special thanks to the 16 Bay View Hotel for sponsoring this event.

This program is part of the Rockport Public Library's month long Seafaring Series. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Rockport Public Library.
