Over the course of Brewster’s early history, not all wives stayed at home. Join our preeminent local historian and author Sally Cabot Gunning, as she discusses the intrepid Brewster and Cape Cod women (and children!) who braved the world seas and describes their life aboard ship.
A lifelong resident of New England, Gunning has immersed herself in its history from a young age. She is the author of six critically acclaimed historically themed novels: The Widow’s War; Bound; The Rebellion of Jane Clarke; Benjamin Franklin’s Bastard; Monticello: A Daughter and Her Father; and Painting the Light. Elected fellow of the Massachusetts Historical Society and current president of The Brewster Historical Society, she creates historical tours of Brewster and contributes monthly historical articles for the local newspaper on behalf of the Society. Her work has appeared nationally in The Washington Post, The Daily Beast, and LitHub, and in an assortment of short story anthologies. She lives with her husband in Brewster.
