EASTHAM – The beauty and history of Cape Cod have inspired literary works for a long time and the Cape Cod National Seashore will kick off October with an event that honors this legacy.

The second hour will include book signings and conversations with the authors.

Participating authors include Robert Finch, who wrote “The Outer Beach: A Thousand-Mile Walk on Cape Cod’s Atlantic Shore,” Don Krohn, the author of “On Cape Cod,” and Martin Sandler, the writer of “The Whydah: A Pirate Ship Feared, Wrecked, and Found.”

The author of “Cape Cod and the Islands: Where Beauty and History Meet,” Kathryn Kleekamp, Nan Rossiter, who wrote “The Fo’c’sle: Henry Beston’s Outermost House,” and Dan Payne, the writer of “Henry Beston, ‘Orion of the Dunes” will also partake.

The event is free and all of the books are available for purchase in the center gift shop and bookstore.
