JULY 6 at 7:00 pm

RUM RUNNING ON CAPE COD with columnist and author Don Wilding. During the era of Prohibition (1920-1933) rum running was big business on Cape Cod. Busy harbors and remote estuaries, were all game as sites for bringing the booze onshore under cover of darkness from Rum Row. This is a comprehensive look at how the “Noble Experiment” turned into a profitable and potentially dangerous undertaking for many Cape Codders. Book signing. 

Dessert reception to follow. $10 members; $15 nonmembers.
