Event description

Description

July 5, 7:30pm - 9pm
Vancouver Maritime Museum

The author’s voyages, recounted with wit and humour, begin on the southwest coast of BC, and continue along the sea of life, to unexpected destinations. In his memoir, No Ordinary Seaman, GARY KARLSEN unravels some of the unfathomable mysteries of deep-sea shipping and the idiosyncratic lives of sailors. Between voyages he discovers his roots in Norway, and becomes immersed in a family larger than he has ever known. But he is soon called back to the sea – his chosen road home. Gary Karlsen’s travels have included circumnavigating North America by thumb, riding the rails across Canada, flying single engine airplanes into mountain lakes, traveling more than half the globe as a merchant mariner, and speaking at international conferences as an educator.
