ballard historical society event dean adamsOur next community event is approaching. Please plan to attend “Fishing and Coming of Age on the High Seas of Alaska,” on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

What was it like to be a young halibut/black cod fisherman in Alaska? Which people and organizations have contributed over the decades to Ballard’s historic fishing fleet? Learn the answers to these questions and more from our presenter, Dean Adams, author of Four Thousand Hooks: A True Story of Fishing and Coming of Age on the High Seas of Alaska (University of Washington Press).

Dean will sign copies of his book, available for purchase in limited quantities at this event ($15 paperback/$25 hard copy). Ballard Historical Society and Sunset Hill Community Association bring this event to the community.
