Cape Cod Massachusetts abounds with maritime stories involving deep sea travel, packet boat journeys, whaling expeditions, early American naval skirmishes, all types of ship building innovations and enough fishing stories to fill up a large trawler. Our American Heritage takes shape before our eyes with tales of entrepreneurial brilliance, daring oceanic adventures, and struggles for survival on land and in the depths of the sea. Join us for stories of audacious sea captains as they take us on a fascinating nautical voyage!
Presented by Dr. Michael Pregot. Pregot is Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at University of West Georgia and a former K-12 School Superintendent of Hanover and Gardner Public Schools.

Falmouth Road Race Author Talk with Paul Clerici (IN-PERSON)
Monday, August 15 at 6:00pm
The history of this fascinating race spans 47 years, and Clerici, an award-winning journalist and freelance writer, will share the behind-the-scenes tales and tidbits he’s culled from hundreds of interviews with runners and supporters connected with Falmouth’s famous 7-miler.
Hear about the runner who swam across the harbor. Learn how legendary coach Bill Squires and his Greater Boston Track Club athletes ignited the race’s competition and how the race’s inspiration – Olympic gold medalist Frank Shorter – came to Falmouth. Find out why 6-time champion Joan Benoit Samuelson nearly missed one year due to her race-morning boat ride.
This compelling story is told through nearly 80 vintage and race-day photographs that span decades, including some which have never been published before. Author Paul Clerici, who has run the Falmouth Road Race several times and the Boston Marathon 23 years in a row, is also the author of the “Boston Marathon History by the Mile” and “History of the Greater Boston Track Club” books.
