We're sorry - this event is sold out!!!!
Join Titcomb's Bookshop and Mass Audubon’s Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary on a cruise to the Elizabeth Islands on Sunday October 1. As a collaborative event that combines the natural and the literary, this tour of Cuttyhunk and Penikese Island will feature acclaimed middle-grade author, Lauren Wolk, whose Beyond the Bright Sea has made a splash this spring as a novel that draws its inspiration from these historic and culturally-rich locations.
This incredible opportunity to explore the real-life setting of Wolk’s fictional masterpiece will allow participants to learn about its significance for the novel’s characters. The tour will be co-led by Long Pasture Sanctuary Director Ian Ives and Naturalist Chris Walz, both of whom have a deep knowledge of the area’s natural history and wildlife. As this family-friendly (children 10+) cruise visits each island, participants will be able to disembark and walk to various landmarks while receiving fascinating information about these sights.
