Henry Beston's Cape Cod at Norton Public Library
1. Henry Beston's Cape Cod at the Norton Public Library:

Thursday at 10:30 a.m.:

Don Wilding, co-founder of the Henry Beston Society, will present a lecture on how Quincy native Beston took to writing fairy tales and eventually found the peace of mind he was looking for on Cape Cod’s outer beach. In doing so, he not only found himself as a writer, but his prose from The Outermost House was quoted in the earliest National Park Service field reports about Cape Cod that sealed its establishment as a national treasure.

DVDs of documentary film project footage and his book will be available for purchase and signing. Proceeds from sales benefit the Henry Beston Society, which is funding this program.
