WALDOBORO — The Waldoboro Public Library will kick off their 2018 Speak Series with author and former swordfishing boat captain, Linda Greenlaw. The program will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 1:30 p.m.

Greenlaw will discuss her newest mystery novel, Shiver Hitch, and her life as a lobster boat captain. She is the author of the bestsellers The Hungry Ocean, All Fishermen are Liars, The Lobster Chronicles, and Recipes from a Small Island, as well as the Jane Bunker mysteries, including Slipknot and Fisherman's Bend.

Before becoming a writer, Ms. Greenlaw was the only female swordfishing boat captain on the East Coast of the United States, the career that earned her a prominent role in The Perfect Storm and a portrayal in the subsequent film.
