Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands
The movie “Shutter Island” was set on a fictitious island in Boston Harbor, but the true stories of the 34 Boston Harbor Islands are even stranger than the film. Join local author Christopher Klein for a virtual tour through the history and beauty of the “real Shutter Islands” and hear tales of ghosts, shipwrecks, prisoners of war and Revolutionary War battles that took place. The program is geared toward adults and starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7, at the Peabody Institute Library, at 15 Sylvan St. in Danvers. For more information, visit www.danverslibrary.org.
