In this pot-pourri talk, uncover a little of our local history and how a legend  became an award-winning radio play.  The Mooncusser’s Tale, a haunting story of piracy and family conflict in 19th century Wellfleet, was a originally broadcast on WOMR-FM. Selections from the radioplay will be read during the program. This talk will also be accompanied by slides of places which inspired the The Mooncusser’s Tale.
