Nobska Author Talk with Ben Carnevale
Please join the Falmouth Public Library and Neighborhood Falmouth on Thursday March 30 at 1:30 PM in the Hermann Meeting Room for an author talk with Ben Carnevale, author of the book Nosbka. Locals and tourists alike pass Nobska Lighthouse in Woods Hole every day. We take comfort in Nobska’s beauty and powerful fourth-order beam. The book takes a close look inside Nobska with photos and text to reveal the history from one of America’s most beloved lighthouses.
