Special Program

On October 25, 2023 from 7-8PM we will host Twinsburg author, Marion Starling Boyer, who will speak about how she uncovered her grandmother’s secret through Ancestry.com and that led her to travel to England and write her book, The Sea Was Never Far. Join us as Boyer unfolds the mystery, shares documents of London’s Foundling Home, and recreates the historical voices of fishermen and gutting girls during the English herring industry’s boom from 1900 to 1913. Of shipwrecks and salvage in the treacherous North Sea; of witnesses to the bomb dropped from a Zeppelin, the first aerial bomb ever to fall on England, with images to accompany these fascinating stories.
