Door County Maritime Speaker Series Continues with “The Wreck of the Griffon”

The Door County Maritime Speaker Series continues March 3, when author Joan Forsberg will delve into one of the great mysteries of the Great Lakes with a talk related to her new book The Wreck of the Griffon, Robert LaSalle’s 17-century sailing ship that disappeared following a voyage to the Grand Traverse Islands.

Also, a program has been added for April. Bruce Lynn, Executive Director of the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society, and Chris Winters will present The Legend Lives On, based on their book on the remarkable legacy of the Edmund Fitzgerald. The presentation is April 7 and will help close out the museum’s tribute exhibit to the Great Lakes’ most famous shipwreck later in the month.

Maritime Speaker Series programs are free of charge with a nonperishable food donation requested. Call 920.743.5958 or visit for more information.
