"Mayflower in Plymouth Harbor," 1882

Author Nathaniel Philbrick and Falmouth Public Library Director Linda Collins join listeners to discuss the true story of the Pilgrims. Why have we fictionalized much of the Pilgrim’s story? How does Philbrick encourage us to rethink those stories? What were some of the misunderstandings that drove a wedge between the natives and the Europeans?  Mindy Todd hosts the discussion.

 

Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI.
