What’s the difference between going on pleasure trips and working at sea? Local author, and former deep-sea trawlerman, James Greene, will be on hand for an informal question and answer session to explain how he found out.
James will be in conversation with Alf Ludlam to talk about his extraordinary book, "Rough Seas” which details his life on the ocean waves – from being swept overboard to being fired on by gunboats.
When James retired from fishing, he became one of the Fishing Heritage Centre’s tour guides, and decided to write the book after being asked by visitors about his experiences. Hear how James first went to sea with his father as a child and from that, decided to follow his father into the fishing industry.
The talk is part of North East Lincolnshire Council’s All At Sea festival - a nautical-themed programme of events and activities during March and April in venues across North East Lincolnshire.
The talk starts at 2.30pm on Wednesday 27 March at Cleethorpes Library.
