Gloucester Harbor History with Local Historian Justin Demetri

Wednesday 30, from 6:00-8:00pm

Join us for an evening of stories and relaxation as we explore the history of Gloucester's working waterfront with local historian and author Justin Demetri!

Growing up "Down the Fort" in one of the many families that comprised Gloucester's Italian fishing fleet, Justin spent his childhood among the fishermen, the boats and the wharves. Justin's friendship with author and historian Joseph E. Garland sparked his love of writing, and appreciation for the special place he still calls home.

Justin holds a degree in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Massachusetts/Boston and is the Director of Visitor Services for the Essex Shipbuilding Museum.
