The July session of Seaport Museum Book Club will feature a virtual conversation on The Lost Endeavor by Charles Harding on July 25, 2022 at 6pm ET via Zoom. For more information and to register for this free event, visit seaportmuseum.org/bookclub.

About The Lost Endeavour
The Lost Endeavour is the story of sailor and author Charles Harding. Kidnapped from his school near Deptford, England, Hardling is taken to Virginia, escapes, joins with a crew of stranded seamen, and takes part in a wild expedition to locate a golden treasure in an ancient temple on an island in the Gulf of Honduras. In 1910, The Outlook called The Lost Endeavour “one of the finest tales of the sea that our island has produced” and asserted that “no other man ever wrote a tale of buccaneering who knew so much about it.” The Lost Endeavour is in the public domain and is available on many online literary resources. The book is also available for purchase at McNally Jackson Books at 4 Fulton Street, NYC.
