Episode 4 of our Plymouth 400 CONVERSATIONS series will be presented in two 15 minutes segments.
Guests: Karen Rinaldo and Kevin Doyle, authors of In the Wake of the Mayflower
In 2019, Karen Rinaldo and Kevin Doyle joined their love of history and art in their book In the Wake of the Mayflower. The book was launched with the timing of the 400th Commemoration of the landing of the Mayflower on Cape Cod. It is scheduled for a second printing in 2021 for the 400th Commemoration of the First Thanksgiving in 1621. The book has also been requested to be translated into Dutch.
In 1994, Rinaldo, also an artist, received a commission for “The First Thanksgiving – 1621,” a painting that was unveiled at Pilgrim Hall Museum in 1995 and exhibited at Plimoth Patuxet Museums for more than 20 years. It is currently on loan at the Museums on the Green in Falmouth, MA.
