Whales closer to extinction; sharks chasing seals chasing fish; turtle strandings; fisheries reeling; shellfish aquaculture expanding; the Gulf of Maine heating rapidly and the Gulf Stream slowing down– all in the context of dynamic coastal change. Sandy Macfarlane probes the stories behind the headlines in an engaging narrative of personal stories and scientific investigation. Join us for an engaging Marine Bio discussion and learn how you can be a part of the solution!

Author Talk: Jenna Blum

Author Talk: Jenna Blum

Author Jenna Blum reads from her recently released novel, The Lost Family:

“In 1965 Manhattan, patrons flock to Masha’s to savor its brisket bourguignon and impeccable service and to admire its dashing owner and head chef Peter Rashkin. With his movie-star good looks and tragic past, Peter, a survivor of Auschwitz, is the most eligible bachelor in town. But Peter does not care for the parade of eligible women who come to the restaurant hoping to catch his eye. He has resigned himself to a solitary life. Running Masha’s consumes him, as does his terrible guilt over surviving the horrors of the Nazi death camp while his wife, Masha—the restaurant’s namesake—and two young daughters perished.

Then exquisitely beautiful June Bouquet, an up-and-coming young model, appears at the restaurant, piercing Peter’s guard. Though she is twenty years his junior, the two begin a passionate, whirlwind courtship. When June unexpectedly becomes pregnant, Peter proposes, believing that beginning a new family with the woman he loves will allow him to let go of the horror of the past. But over the next twenty years, the indelible sadness of those memories will overshadow Peter, June, and their daughter Elsbeth, transforming them in shocking, heartbreaking, and unexpected ways.” (amazon.com)
Books will be available for purchase and signing
