      Lecture: Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Hanover: The Romance and Reality of a Maine Shipwreck

      The wreck of the Hanover and loss of all hands in 1849 shocked the midcoast Maine community.  Susan Beegle will reveal how this tragedy inspired literary themes in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s The Pearl of Orr’s Island, written over a decade after the Hanover’s loss.
