Friends and Members of the Hawkins Squadron:
Don’t forget Thursday evening’s Squadron meeting at Fisherman’s Wharf Restaurant in Galveston, with our guest Steve Curley, who will narrate a 19th-century sailing voyage to the tune of a handful of chanteys. Curley is an award-winning teacher of literature and film at Texas A&M University at Galveston. He received his BA from Fordham University and his PhD from Rice University. His most recent books include a history of that institution and a history of Texas Clipper, the famous training ship of the Texas A&M Maritime Academy for three decades and now an artificial diving reef off the coast of Brownsville. Dr. Curley will have copies of his Clipper book available for purchase and signing at the meeting. The evening will begin with a meet-and-greet and cash bar at 6:30 p.m. with dinner and Dr. Curley’s presentation at about 7:30.
Please don’t worry if you didn’t RSVP for the meeting before — just shoot me a quick email at maritimetexas-at-gmail-dot-com, and come on down on Thursday! Good music, good friends, and good food!
Hawkins Squadron Deputy Commander
