On Thursday, May 31, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum hosted a private reception to celebrate the launching of CBMM’s newly published book, Tradition, Speed and Grace: Chesapeake Bay Sailing Log Canoes, written by John C. North II, with images by Chesapeake artist Marc Castelli, among others. At the reception, CBMM Chief Curator Pete Lesher introduced North, who spoke about the challenges in the journey leading to his published work, while acknowledging his wife, Ethel, for her endless support and encouragement. The book is available at CBMM’s Museum Store, with 100% of the book’s proceeds benefiting the children and adults served by the non-profit museum. For more information, go to cbmm.org.
