Six local authors will take to the sea Friday for an evening of whale-watching, wine tasting and literary talk in Hearthside Bookstore’s annual Authors at Sea event.
The event runs from 6-9 p.m. Friday, including wine tasting courtesy of Specialty Imports and a whale-watching cruise. Tickets are $65 and are for sale at both Hearthside locations (at the Nugget Mall and at 254 Front Street). As of Wednesday morning, tickets were still available.
The six authors — Bjorn Dihle, Ernestine Hayes, Ishmael Hope, Eowyn Ivey, Mark Kelley and Kate Troll — will join aboard the Allen Marine Catamaran for the evening, which projects to be a clear evening suitable for spotting whales.
