Event Type

Author and anthropologist Margaret Willson will present a talk on her new book Woman, Captain, Rebel at the Columbia River Maritime Museum on Saturday April 8th at 10:00AM.

A notorious crime, a lone woman standing on the side of justice regardless of who opposes her, and the thrills of the wide-open sea.

This book is a stunning historical account of Thurídur Einarsdóttir, a fearless woman who contested social norms while simultaneously becoming a respected captain, stood up for justice for herself and her fellow Icelanders —and also solved one of the country’s most notorious robberies. Both horrifying and magnificent, this story will captivate readers from the first page and keep them thinking long after they turn the last.
