The Talk of the Town Speaker Series will kick off on Wednesday, September 21, at 7 PM with a talk by Michael Pregot, author of “Cape Cod Sea Captains: Each Town’s Contribution to Maritime History.”

The book explores the connection that each Cape Cod town has to the sea as demonstrated through its seafaring residents and provides a glimpse into heroic maritime adventures, entrepreneurial brilliance and an appreciation of the resolve needed by captains to thrive in a hostile seaside environment. Maritime figures take several forms, including distinguished fishermen, military war heroes, deep-sea merchants, local coasters, packet boat captains, whalers, ship architects, luxury passenger liner magnates, and even “moonscussers” prowling along the coastline for treasure.
