Mermaid Book Signing at the Whydah Pirate Museum in Provincetown

Mermaids and Pirates go together like...well, mermaids and Cape Cod! A perfect combination for summer reading fun!

Monday July 7th from noon to 3 p.m. is the first official book signing for book 2 of the Mermaids of Cape Cod series! (Copies of the first book on hand for signing and purchase as well!)

Katie will be traveling to P-town, out at the very tip of Cape Cod, to the famous pirate museum. She had two wonderful book signings there last summer and is hoping for a few more this summer! If you're looking for something fun to do on Monday, head out to Provincetown and splash down on MacMillan Wharf!

From the Museum's website:
Commanded by the famed pirate Sam Bellamy, the Whydah was wrecked off Wellfleet in 1717, taking with her the treasures of fifty plundered ships.
According to Cape Cod legend, Bellamy was returning to his lady-love, Maria Hallett, the “Witch of Wellfleet”, when his ship met disaster in one of the worst storms to strike the eastern seaboard.
Only two men of 146 made it to the beach alive, making the Whydah wreck the worst ever on the shores of the Cape.
Bellamy’s loss was history’s gain, however, as the contents of his once-proud flagship represent a unique look into the lives of the pirates, and an unprecedented cross-cultural sampling of treasures from the world of the 18th century.
Discovered by underwater explorer Barry Clifford, this archaeological shipwreck recovery project has been named a National Geographic Society “Special Event”, and our Provincetown Museum is the headquarters for our ongoing underwater archaeological missions.
