Author Wendy Hinman

Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire by author Wendy Hinman.  Wendy is an adventurer, speaker and the award-winning author of two books, Tightwads on the Loose and Sea Trials. Sea Trials, her second book, tells the exciting story of the harrowing journey of the Wilcox family. A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for them. To triumph, they must rebuild their boat on a remote Pacific island. Damage sustained on the reef and a lack of resources haunt them the rest of the way around the world as they face daunting obstacles, including wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, plus pesky bureaucrats and cockroaches as stubborn as the family. Without a working engine and no way to communicate with the outside world, they struggle to reach home before their broken rig comes crashing down and they run out of food in a trial that tests them to their limits.  Wendy Hinman's books and presentations are filled with humor and hard-won lessons that amuse and inspire. Don't miss the chance to hear her present while she is in town. For more information, visit her website www.wendyhinman.com.

Books & Babies: A Pre-Wee Storytime/Playgroup

Books & Babies: A “Pre-Wee” Storytime/Playgroup for Parents and Caregivers of Newborn to Pre-crawling Infants - It’s never too early to share the love of reading with a child, and building early literacy skills — those skills that must be in place before reading actually begins — does, indeed, begin on the lap of a caregiver! This five-week series of classes will include an age appropriate read-aloud, songs, bounces, chants and fingerplays. In addition, early literacy tips, topics and resources will be shared each week. The “storytime” portion will last approximately 20 minutes, with parents and caregivers invited to remain after for informal social time. Healthy refreshments will be served. Registration is required for this five-week program. The Library is closed during this program; registrants must enter the building at the side, rear door. Reminder: strollers are not permitted inside the library.

The Books and Babies: “Pre-Wee” Storytime/Playgroup is brought to you through our LSTA grant, Chatham Reads with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

Books & Babies: A Pre-Wee Storytime/Playgroup

Books & Babies: A “Pre-Wee” Storytime/Playgroup for Parents and Caregivers of Newborn to Pre-crawling Infants - It’s never too early to share the love of reading with a child, and building early literacy skills — those skills that must be in place before reading actually begins — does, indeed, begin on the lap of a caregiver! This five-week series of classes will include an age appropriate read-aloud, songs, bounces, chants and fingerplays. In addition, early literacy tips, topics and resources will be shared each week. The “storytime” portion will last approximately 20 minutes, with parents and caregivers invited to remain after for informal social time. Healthy refreshments will be served. Registration is required for this five-week program. The Library is closed during this program; registrants must enter the building at the side, rear door. Reminder: strollers are not permitted inside the library.

The Books and Babies: “Pre-Wee” Storytime/Playgroup is brought to you through our LSTA grant, Chatham Reads with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

The talk also sheds deep insight into the author’s creative process as he discusses the delicate balance between integrating historical detail while remaining faithful to the family lore that inspired his novel.

Rum Running on Cape Cod with Don Wilding

Rum Running on Cape Cod - During the era of Prohibition (1920-1933), rum running was big business on Cape Cod. Farmers and fishermen of the Cape took to the seas, heading offshore to "Rum Row" to bring the criminal yet coveted alcohol to the mainland under cover of darkness, while the possibility of being caught by the Coast Guard was always present. Busy harbors and remote estuaries, many of which are now popular tourist destinations, were all game for bringing the contraband ashore, while local law enforcement officials often turned a blind eye. Join Don for this comprehensive look at how "the Noble Experiment" turned into a profitable and potentially dangerous undertaking for many of the Cape's residents.   Since the start of the millennium, Don Wilding has been telling stories of Cape Cod Outer Beach history through lectures, video, and the written word. An award-winning writer and editor for Massachusetts newspapers for 30 years, Don pens the popular “Shore Lore” history column for the Cape Codder newspaper of Orleans, and is the author of two books, “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: How ‘The Outermost House’ Inspired a National Seashore,” for the Henry Beston Society, and "A Brief History of Eastham: On the Outer Beach of Cape Cod," from The History Press. Don has also been an instructor of Cape Cod history courses for the Open University of Wellfleet and Nauset Community Education.

Rum Running on Cape Cod - During the era of Prohibition (1920-1933), rum running was big business on Cape Cod. Farmers and fishermen of the Cape took to the seas, heading offshore to "Rum Row" to bring the criminal yet coveted alcohol to the mainland under cover of darkness, while the possibility of being caught by the Coast Guard was always present. Busy harbors and remote estuaries, many of which are now popular tourist destinations, were all game for bringing the contraband ashore, while local law enforcement officials often turned a blind eye. Join Don for this comprehensive look at how "the Noble Experiment" turned into a profitable and potentially dangerous undertaking for many of the Cape's residents.   Since the start of the millennium, Don Wilding has been telling stories of Cape Cod Outer Beach history through lectures, video, and the written word. An award-winning writer and editor for Massachusetts newspapers for 30 years, Don pens the popular “Shore Lore” history column for the Cape Codder newspaper of Orleans, and is the author of two books, “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: How ‘The Outermost House’ Inspired a National Seashore,” for the Henry Beston Society, and "A Brief History of Eastham: On the Outer Beach of Cape Cod," from The History Press. Don has also been an instructor of Cape Cod history courses for the Open University of Wellfleet and Nauset Community Education.

On the Trail of Bonnie and Clyde with Chris Daley

This lecture which is part travelogue and part history, will chronicle the story of Bonnie and Clyde separating the reality from the myth! For years the public has been fascinated with the story of this Dust bowl Romeo and Juliet. However much of what we know is mainly from the 1967 movie "Bonnie and Clyde" and more recently a highly fictionalized made for TV movie shown on A&E and the History Channel. Much myth, conjecture and outright lies have grown up about the two Texas bandits, but when one delves into the true story of the two lovers, a much more interesting and human story emerges; much better than Hollywood was able to depict. This one hour lecture will tell that story through the use of period photographs and movies plus modern photographs and video shot by Chris. He traveled through the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri on the "Trail of Bonnie and Clyde," photographing and making video of the sites of their homes, murders, robberies, shootouts and hideouts. Along the way he met characters like L.J. "Boots" Hinton, the son of lawman Ted Hinton - a member of the posse that took down Bonnie and Clyde in 1934 and the mayor of dusty Kemp Texas who related a fascinating story of Bonnie's incarceration at the Kemp Calaboose. Chris drove over 4,000 miles in search of the real Bonnie and Clyde. Please join us as he takes you on the "Trail of Bonnie and Clyde."
