An illustrated talk by author Eric Jay Dolin
The Cape Ann Museum is pleased to present an illustrated talk by author Eric Jay Dolin on his newest work, Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse on Saturday, April 30 at 3:00p.m. Dolin describes his book as, “…a story about colonial commerce, nation building, war, technological innovation, engineering feats, storms, tragedy, personal sacrifice and inspiring determination, as well as poetry, art and hope…I think that’s enough for one book.”
Cost for the program is $15 for CAM members / $20 for non-members (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; reservations required.
For more information, email us at email@example.com. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Museum at 978-283-0455 x10 or online at Eventbrite.

Dolin, the best-selling author of Leviathan, will discuss his most recent book, Brilliant Beacons, which traces the evolution of America’s lighthouse system, highlighting the political, military and technological battles fought to illuminate the nation’s coastlines. The talk will include remarks on the Thacher Island Fresnel lens, which can be seen in the Museum’s maritime galleries and is the inspiration for the term “brilliant beacon,” as their use transformed American lighthouses. Following the program, Dolin will be available to sign copies of his book, for sale in the Museum Shop.
CAM program coordinator Kate LaChance recently sat down with Dolin to discuss his newest book in greater detail. That interview can heard on the Cape Ann Museum website here: http://www.capeannmuseum.org/video-links/
