CANCELLED DUE TO SCHEDULING CONFLICT!
Joyce Prince, a direct descendant of pilgrim and passenger on the Mayflower in 1620 is coming November 18 at 10:00 AM to 12 NOON (just in time for Thanksgiving!) to read from and sign her book Mary Chilton Winslow: Survivor of the Mayflower Voyage.
This is the story of Mary Chilton Winslow, survivor of the Mayflower voyage. If James Chilton and his family had not been courageous and willing to sacrifice their country and comfortable life in England and Holland to seek religious freedom, the story of Mary Chilton Winslow would not be known. We will never know the extent of the frightening moments aboard the Mayflower nor the harrowing adventures experienced by a thirteen year old girl (an orphan) but we can imagine some of her feelings of loneliness and isolation in a new place. From the story we have an idea of Mary's perseverance, stamina, and willingness to accompany her parents on a voyage which will go down in history as an amazing step in the creation of a new settlement and the beginning of a new country: America.
