Steve Sheppard with John Stanton: Nantucket Nocturne

Author, musician, songwriter, and teacher Steve Sheppard will talk with filmmaker and Nantucket Today editor John Stanton about writing life in and about Nantucket. Sheppard’s "Nantucket Nocturne: A Winter’s Idyll" is a wild romp of a tale about present day Nantucket with echoes of our whaling past, complete with a decades-old robbery of a whaling era sea chest, romance, and intrigue among year round island dwellers. The answer to the age-old question , “Just what do islanders do in the winter?” becomes obvious, “Plenty.”
