Book Talk and Signing
Thursday, July 27
Visitors Center, 2 Church St.
PMM Director Emeritus Renny Stackpole returns to Penobscot Marine Museum to share his latest research, which he has just published in the book “The Gillchrest Papers”. Tucked away in his attic was the source of his research, the family letters and business papers of the Gillchrests, a Thomaston, Maine seafaring family who built, managed, and sailed ships to distant ports around the world from 1830-1870. Renny will be signing books after his talk.
