Peaks Island: Past and Present
Book Talk with Kimberly Erico MacIsaac

Recorded on February 8, 2022

Peaks Island: Past and Present brings to light the island’s rich and diverse--yet largely hidden--past as a fishing village, a bustling summer resort, and an important military base during World War II. It is the story of a unique Maine island community rooted in its past but very much part of the modern world. In this talk, Kimberly Erico MacIssac as discusses her new book and the island she calls home.
