Cape history walks, talks this fall

The temperatures are starting to drop, but my schedule of Cape Cod History walks and talks is picking up as we move into fall on Cape Cod.

Here’s a look at what I’ll be up to through early December. First, the public events:

  • Monday, Oct. 21: “Rum Running on Cape Cod,” for the South Boston Historical Society, to be held at St. Brigid Church (Cushing Hall), 841 E. Broadway, South Boston, at 6:30 p.m. (originally scheduled for South Boston branch of the Boston Public Library;

  • Wednesday, Dec. 4: “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: How ’The Outermost House Inspired a National Seashore,” at the Boston Public Library, 7 p.m.;

  • A “Outer Beach Shipwrecks & Rescues” walk at the Cape Cod National Seashore will be held on Nov. 2. Preregistration required.

Here’s some of the private events I’ll be doing:

  • “Cape Cod Legends, Lore, and Mysteries,” for a tour group in October;

  • A private bus tour of Hyannis and Sandwich in October;

  • Walks through Provincetown for tour groups during October;

  • “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: How ’The Outermost House Inspired a National Seashore” — this year, I’ll lead an Outermost House themed walk on the Cape for my annual October presentation to students from Tahanto Regional High School in Boylston, Mass.;

  • “Rum Running on Cape Cod,” for the Encore of Falmouth Newcomers Club in November.
