Conjunction: The Emerging Connection of Cannery Row, the historic Pacific Northwest, John Steinbeck & Ed Ricketts, the Sea of Cortez, and the Saga of the Western Flyer

Talks/Lectures
Humanities in the Harbor, a monthly lecture series that explores unique and engaging topics for the Gig Harbor community, will continue in May as the Harbor History Museum welcomes author and historian Michael Hemp. "Conjunction: The Emerging Connection of Cannery Row, the historic Pacific Northwest, John Steinbeck & Ed Ricketts, the Sea of Cortez, and the Saga of the Western Flyer" is an exclusive archival photo presentation by Cannery Row historian, founder and president emeritus of the Cannery Row Foundation (Est. 1983). On Thursday, May 17th, we invite you to join Michael Hemp as he continues opening up a vast, exciting new relationship between the historic Pacific Northwest and Monterey's Cannery Row: the last frontier of research of a shared but little known historic, maritime, literary and ecological legacy. Since 1983, Michael Hemp and The History Company have been a major source of historical research on author John Steinbeck's world-famous Cannery Row literature and the ecological fame of America's pioneering marine biologist, Ed Ricketts. Hemp now turns his focus to Pacific Northwest historical research, exploration, and celebration of the emerging discoveries that connect us in many unexpected and meaningful ways. Humanities in the Harbor is held at Harbor History Museum, 4121 Harborview Drive, Gig Harbor, WA 98332. Admission is free for Harbor History Museum members; Non-Members: $5. Tickets can be purchased online on the Museum's Buy Tickets page or by calling 253-858-6722; tickets may also be purchased at the door. Questions and inquires may be directed to Zachary Sokolik, Marketing & Events Coordinator at Harbor History Museum at marketing@harborhistorymuseum.org.
