Linda Greenlaw event this Thursday, 7/15 @ American Legion!

Hi Joey,
I’m sending this to you on behalf of Janice Severance, can you post something about the Linda
Greenlaw event sponsored by The Bookstore this Thursday, 7/15 at 7pm?  Due to the anticipated
interest, it is being held at the American Legion, 8 Washington Street.  There will be a table set
up with books available for purchase at the event, but folks can always stop by The Bookstore
anytime to pick up a book as well.  Linda’s funny and engaging stories are sure to please the crowd,
as always.  This should be a huge event for the city that put her on the map with The Hungry Ocean.

Seaworthy
The bestselling author’s sequel to The Hungry Ocean–a fast- paced account of her return to
swordfishing
Linda Greenlaw hadn’t been bluewater fishing for ten years- not since the events chronicled in the
books The Perfect Storm and The Hungry Ocean-but when her lobster traps aren’t paying off, her
truck is on its last gasp, and the bills are piling up, she decides to take a friend up on his
offer and captain a boat for a season of swordfishing. A decade older, and with family
responsibilities, she’s a different person heading out to sea, but any reluctance is quickly
tempered by the magnetic lure of adventure. And the adventures begin almost immediately: The ship
turns out to be rusty and ancient, and even with a crew of four Greenlaw is faced with technical
challenges. There are the expected complexities of longline fishing and the nuances of reading the
weather. Her greatest challenge, however, comes when the boat’s lines inadvertently drift into
Canadian waters and Greenlaw is thrown in jail.
Capturing the moment-by-moment details of her journey, Greenlaw tells a story about human nature
and the nature around us, about learning what can be controlled and when to let fate step in.
Seaworthy is a compelling narrative about a person setting her own terms and finding her true self
between land and water.

    Also, One of the times I met her was in New Bedford MA & I have to tell everyone that she had nothing but good things to say about the guys out of Glosta that she fished with. Awesome women.

  5. Jenn Cullen says:

    I totally agree, lobsterlady, I’ve talked to her at all of her past readings at The Bookstore and she always speaks so highly of Glosta and the guys she fished with here! She is totally awesome.
