The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter: Author Talk and Book Signing

June 24, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Come and meet Lenore Skomal, author of the engaging book, THE LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER’S DAUGHTER, at the Montauk Point Lighthouse!

Born in 1842, Ida Lewis assumed the keeping of Lime Rock Light in Newport, RI at the tender age of 15. Set against the backdrop of a country in turmoil and progress, including the Civil War and the Woman’s Suffrage Movement, Ida’s seemingly unexceptional life took a drastic turn when the world discovered that she’d been silently saving the lives of countless sailors. Fame took her in hand and, overnight, she became an international sensation. Something she neither wanted nor got accustomed to.  Filmmaker Nico Raineau has adapted a screenplay based on Skomal’s book, to be produced as a major motion picture.

This event is free with admission to the Lighthouse.
