Look to the Sea Book Club

Join Jodi Guerra (a lover of all sea stories) for a few favorites to read. Our focus will be on non-fiction works.

This club meets once per month, the third Sunday of the month at 7:30 PM ET for September- November and February- April. This will be a true book club. The club leader will present an overview, but discussion will be based on participation of members.

The books are:

  • In the Heart of the Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick (September)
  • Longitude by Dava Sobel (October)
  • War of the Whales by Joshua Horwitz (November)
  • Into the Raging Sea: Thirty-Three Mariners, One Megastorm, and the Sinking of El Faro by Rachel Slde (Februrary)
  • The Soul of the Octopus by Sy Montgomery (March)
  • In the Wake of Madness: The Murderous Voyage of the Whaleship Sharon by Joan Druett  (April)

If you are not logged into your account, you may see a requirement for a 30% deposit to register; however, there is no charge to reserve for a club.
