Anyone who knows Union Park Press knows that we have a bit of a thing for the Boston Harbor Islands. Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands, by Christopher Klein, was the first book published by the Press back in 2008, with an updated 2nd edition released this past spring.
With the Mass Memories Roadshow focusing gathering old photographs and personal stories about the Boston Harbor Islands this weekend, we knew we had to get in on the action. (See author Christopher Klein’s great blog post here for more details on the roadshow.)
So in honor of the Boston Harbor Islands Roadshow, we’ve decided to hold our own little event to celebrate our beloved islands. Enter our twitter contest to win a copy of Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands along with two ferry vouchers so you can enjoy end-of-season events such as the Second Annual Summer Shack Chowder Cook Off, the 7th Annual Boston Harbor Islands Regatta, or an island escape of your own design. Use Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands to help plan your adventure, whether it’s tracking down the park’s colony of breeding seals or hiking along scenic trails as the leaves begin to change color.
Here’s How to Enter: Beginning today, follow us on twitter @unionparkpress and tweet: “I want to Discover the Boston Harbor Islands with @unionparkpress!” Please be sure to include @unionparkpress in your tweet or we won’t see it! We will randomly select a winner and announce it on Twitter at noon on Wednesday, September 21st.
