In Aida, Bray tells the story of “N.G. Herreshoff’s finest shallow draft yawl, Aida, from her original design, her 40 years in the Bray family, to her 2007 restoration by D. N. Hylan & Associates of Brooklin,” according to a news release. “The text is illustrated throughout with photographs from the collections of Bray and Benjamin Mendlowitz as well as original Herreshoff drawings.” Call 359-5030 for further information about this event.
