Book Signing/Lecture: "Shipwrecks of Cape Cod"

Local author and historian Don Wilding discusses some of the most memorable shipwrecks along Cape Cod’s treacherous coast, from the seventeenth to the twentieth century.

Join us as Don Wilding revisits these and other maritime disasters, along with the heroic rescue efforts of the U.S. Life-Saving Service and Coast
