4:00 PM - 5:15 PM
Whaling in New England: a Zoom event

We are pleased to welcome Dr. Michael Pregot on Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m., for a Zoom presentation by the Falmouth Public Library!

Many different forms of whaling have been seen in Cape Cod. Drift, shore, herding, deep sea and arctic whaling have all been practiced at one time or another. Each specific form of whaling has a small history connected with it. In the early 1800’s, whaling was among the most profitable enterprises in United States, second only textiles. It remained strong for four decades. Michael will explain why whale products are so valuable, and discuss the historic rationales as to why the whaling center moved from Nantucket, to New Bedford and eventually to Providence. The storied lives of a few extremely successful Cape Cod whaling captains make the session come alive.   

Dr. Pregot has spent over a half of a century in the field of education. He has served as a high school principal, a district-wide school superintendent, a professor of education and as a University Director of an Educational Leadership Department. He has published several articles and a textbook on the dispositions needed to be a respected school official. He has lived on the Cape for several years with his wife, Judith.  He is still an on-line professor and author. The maritime history of the Cape has caught his attention for the past few years.  He is currently studying the contributions that each Cape Cod town has made to the overall richness of maritime life.  

This event is free, and geared for adults, although all are welcome. It is a Zoom event, and registration is required by 5 pm on the day of the program. To register, please click the button here-the link will be sent to you before the event. 

NOTE Downloading the Zoom application previous to the start of the event is required to participate. If you need assistance with this, please contact the reference department at 508-457-2555 x. 7.

Mondays, October 5, 19, 26 and November 2, 10-11 AM

Is Louisa May Alcott's tale of the March sisters still relevant today, 151 years after it was written?  Some critics argue that the story is what Alcott herself called, "moral pap for the young."

Reading assignments:
for October 5:  chapters 1-12
October 12:  Library closed in observance of Columbus Day
for October 19:  chapters 13-23
for October 26:  chapters 24-35|
for November 2:  chapters 36-47 (The end.)
