WHALE HO! was SRO!

whalehocrowdThanks to all who braved the 17 degree weather to join us at Cafe Le Perche for WHALE HO! last Thursday. It was a standing room only crowd! The grog was a nice bit of liquid warmth and the talk, led by whaling expert Carlo DeVito, was informative and lively. Although most of the conversation was based on the book The Wreck of the Whaleship Essex, DeVito included additional information specifically about Hudson – since it was such a whaling center in the mid-eighteen hundreds.

Book sales were brisk, but if you missed getting a copy, Kelley Drahushuk, owner of Spotty Dog Books and Ale, just sent us this e-mail:

If anyone wants a copy of this beautiful book, stop by the Spotty Dog in the next week or so – I have signed copies and am happy to support the library with your purchase. I had a great time. And the grog was indeed delicious.

Thanks to Cafe Le Perche for providing us with this warm and comfortable venue and for the delicious food. Thanks to the volunteers and, of course, all of you supporters!
