A Sea Captain's Stories

Sep 13, 2017


Linda Greenlaw is a fishing boat captain, and also the author of five bestselling nonfiction books about life as a commercial fisherman. Greenlaw is familiar to many because she was featured in Sebastian Junger’s best selling book The Perfect Storm, where he described her as not just the only female sword fishing captain, but "one of the best captains, period, on the entire East Coast." On The Point, we talk about that storm, and about her latest book Shiver Hitch. Linda Greenlaw will be at the Working Waterfront Festival on Saturday September 23rd.
