‘Adventures of a Nantucket Whaler’ talk at Quarry Hill
CAMDEN — Adults 50-plus can experience New England’s whaling days through the eyes of a ship’s boy, Wednesday, May 15, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, at Quarry Hill’s main building, the Anderson Inn.
The program is the next event in Quarry Hill’s Adventures in Living Well series.
Presented by Renny Stackpole, director emeritus of the Penobscot Marine Museum and former curator of The Whaling Museum at Nantucket, “Adventures of a Nantucket Whaler” will center on the tale of young Obed Folger, who worked aboard the 1820s whaler Lady Adams. His first-person account will be illustrated with paintings and other visuals.
Copies of Stackpole’s recent books, Sea Letters and Treasures in the Attic, will be available for purchase and signing.
All Adventures in Living Well programs are free of charge, but advance registration is required. To sign up for the May 15 talk, call Quarry Hill at 921-6116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
