Old York’s popular winter lecture series, History. . . with a side of soup! has gone virtual! Join us for a webinar with historian and photographer, Jeremy D’Entremont.
Explore the fascinating stories of lighthouse keepers and their families in an illustrated presentation about two local lighthouses. One, the Cape Neddick Light (fondly known as the “Nubble”), is one of the most visited and photographed lighthouses in the world. The other, the Boon Island Light, is distant and desolate. D’Entremont reveals the exciting, tragic, and humorous tales of life at both.
Jeremy D’Entremont has been photographing, researching, and writing about lighthouses for more than three decades. He is the author of more than 20 books on lighthouses and other maritime subjects, including The Lighthouse Handbook: New England, All About Nubble Light, and a four-volume set on the lighthouses of Maine. He is the founder and chairman of Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouses, and president and historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation. He has lectured and narrated cruises all over New England and has appeared on national TV and radio speaking about his favorite subject. He also produces a podcast, Light Hearted, for the U.S. Lighthouse Society.
