Vaughn Sherman of Edmonds will visit Eagle Harbor Books at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27 to read from “Sea Travels: Memoirs of a 20th Century Master Mariner.”

“Sea Travels” is the story of J. Holger Christensen as told to Sherman, the sailor’s nephew. Sherman, a former Pacific Northwest fisheries biologist and a retired CIA officer, captured his uncle’s stories on audio tape shortly before his death.

Using seed money, earned gold mining in Alaska, a Danish couple and their two young boys make their way to Bainbridge Island; buy a workboat; and establish themselves among the Pacific Northwest’s most respected seafarers.
