Meet the Author


Celebrated science writer Deborah Cramer will discuss the beauty and fragility of the ocean at the library on Wednesday, Nov. 12. Her new book, ‘Smithsonian Ocean: Our Water Our World’ was commissioned as the companion volume for the new Ocean Hall at the Smithsonian Institution. Cramer has written an engaging and perspective-changing history of the ocean that offers a magnificent journey through space and time that concludes with an ocean ethic we ignore at our peril.

All Meet the Author events take place in the Brenner Friends Room at the Rockport Public Library, 17 School Street. For more information, visit
