Mark your calendars to attend this well-timed program. On September 16, Jeffrey Amestoy will present his new book Slavish Shore: The Odyssey of Richard Henry Dana Jr., the first full-length biography of Dana in more than half a century and released on his 200th birthday.

Amestoy, a former Vermont Chief Justice, will present his discussion at Dana Point’s Ocean Institute in the Samueli Conference Center at 24200 Dana Point Harbor Drive.  A reception will follow.

 You can read and watch more about the former state Chief Justice and his interest in Dana in his Boston Globe newspaper commentary and in a television interview on Vermont’s channel WCAX, both found here:
