Talk on the Rock is KSTK’s live call-in show. Every Tuesday at 1pm we welcome a local guest to discuss events and topics of interest to our little island town. For this week’s episode, host June Leffler spoke with Keeleigh Solverson and Cyni Crary about an upcoming exhibit at the Nolan Center. It’s called “Wrangell Remembers – Shipwrecks Close to Home, 1908-1952.” It will feature interactive displays on the S.S Princess Sophia, Star of Bengal, S.S. Princess Kathleen, and S.S. Mariposa. Interactive displays at the Nolan Center will explain each of the ships’ function, journeys, tragic ending and mystery. Some of the museum’s own artifacts from these ships will also be on display.
At the exhibit’s opening reception on Nov 8th, locals Gig Decker and Mary and Mike Kurth will speak about their relationship to some of the ships still resting in the depths of our nearby waters. Doors open at 6:30 PM, presentation at 7:00 PM. Food and spirits provided by the local Friends of the Museum.
