Speaking on the crisis in the world's oceans and Gulf of Maine, Portland, Me, May 12

I'll be speaking about the crisis in the world's oceans and in the Gulf of Maine at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland this coming Thursday, May 12.

The event, which kicks off at 7pm, is entitled "Mayday: Crisis in the World's Oceans from Antarctica to the Gulf of Maine" and keys off my global reporting on the oceans crisis, my first book, Ocean's End: Travels Through Endangered Seas, and the recent Press Herald series "Mayday," which was a finalist for this year's Pulitzer Prize in Explanatory Reporting.

The good news is the event is free and open to the public. The bad news is you need to RSVP, it's already filled to capacity, and there's a waiting list. But give it a shot! It'll be fun, and you know some people won't show up. I'll even be signing books afterward.

Can't make it? I'll be doing another talk more or less on this subject at the Wells National Estuarine Reserve in Wells, Maine on June 16.
