Jim Masciarelli Writes from Naples Florida

Small world.

Every day Judi and I read the GMG blog when we are snowbirding in Naples, Fl. We love the great photos and stories that keep Gloucester in our thoughts.
I was signing books at the Naples Southwest Regional Library Saturday along with 47 local authors and a nice retired couple came by to get a copy of Beyond Beauport. They spent most of their lives in Gloucester: Frank Greely Crotti and Susan S. Crotti.

For the size of Gloucester, no matter where we go, people know it, visited it, love it and some now live here in Florida.

BEYOND BEAUPORT BOOK LAUNCH

YOU’RE INVITED…

BEYOND BEAUPORT BOOK LAUNCH

JULY 29 

6:30-8:30 PM

ROCKY NECK CULTURAL CENTER

GLOUCESTER, MA

**RSVP REQUIRED SEATING IS LIMITED. PLEASE RSVP BEFORE JULY 25.**

Join local author James Masciarelli to celebrate the launch of his novel, “Beyond Beauport”. The evening will include a presentation by James, opportunities for mingling, a book signing, wine & cheese, soft drinks, and a few surprises.

James’ discussion will include remarks about the journey he took to publication and fascinating little known facts about Gloucester’s seafaring characters of the past. James will also touch upon his novel’s main character, Shannon Clarke, and her mid-life quest for her seafaring ancestry. Her childhood dream of becoming a sea captain is revived when her long-lost Uncle Patrick comes to town with salty tales of their family’s connections to famous Gloucester sea captains and infamous pirates of the Caribbean. Shannon and her uncle take to the sea in Patrick’s brigantine in a voyage fraught with raw forces of nature, past traumas and present-day sea raiders. Their beliefs about family, identity and purpose are shaken to the core. James would be honored for you to join him for this special evening.

Seating is limited please RSVP today. Looking forward to seeing you!
