Our monthly Speaker Series welcomes David Tory.
Meet author David Tory, who explores the adventures of Isaac Stanfield, who leaves Dorchester to become a sailor on a merchantman, The Sweet Rose. Through resilience, initiative and luck, Isaac finds himself a participant and observer in the explorations that preceded the arrival of the Mayflower in New England in 1620.
Isaac’s thirst for adventure is tempered by the love and support of friends while his youthful exuberance and charm attract many important people to engage him in their endeavors.
