Local authors talk about work

Three noted locals will focus on historic Scituate residents with a talk about the new book “Legendary Locals of Scituate.” Written by Bob Gallagher, a trustee for the Scituate Historical Society and the resident caretaker of the Scituate Lighthouse; Carol Miles, an archivist for the historical society; and Mat Brown, a noted cartoonist, former teacher, and member of the historical society, the book looks into the 375 years of Scituate history and some of the individuals who made the town special. The talk begins at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Scituate Town Library. The people spotlighted in the book range from the first Scituate light keepers in 1812 to the Stewart family, a long line of public servants who are relatives of current Police Chief Michael Stewart. “It’s going to be fun. It’s three local authors that combined and wrote the book together,” said the library’s Susan Pope, who added, “It’s a nice varied selection, and apparently they are working on the next book!”
