Please join us as we kick off our 2019 Keeping History Alive Lecture Series with a special presentation given by Mr. Michael D. White, a vocational maritime historian and researcher. Mr. White will be sharing anecdotes and images from his 2014 book, “Shipwrecks of the California Coast: Wood to Iron, Sail to Steam”, as well as information on several recently discovered shipwrecks that had, until very recently, rested on the bottom of the ocean for decades, cloaked in mystery.

There will be a fifteen minute question and answer session after the lecture followed by a book signing. If you do not have a copy of the book, copies will be available for purchase.

FREE for Friends of Banning Museum Members and children under 12.
$5.00 for Non-Members. Call 310-548-2005 for more information and to RSVP.
