Mattapoisett Library Local Author Talk
September 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Come to the Mattapoisett Free Public Library on Sunday September 24 from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm to hear Mattapoisett resident and author Kimberly J. Ward talk about her newly released book Crew of Three: How Bold Dreams and Detailed Plans Launched Our Family’s Sailing Adventure. Not a sailor but an avid adventurer, gardener, journal writer and traveler; learn how Ward’s bold dreams and detailed plans launched her family’s sailing adventures as she, her husband and their 10-year-old daughter moved aboard their 34-foot boat for two years and sailed from Massachusetts to Grenada and back. The book is the story of their decision to go, the two years of planning to make it work, plus the first several months they lived aboard. More than a mere guidebook, it is part memoir and part instruction manual for breaking free of the ordinary. Travelers, gardeners, sailors and dreamers alike will find both wisdom and inspiration in this family’s adventures. Signed copies of Ward’s book will be available for purchase. The event is free and open to all.
