It’s 1853. Steam is threatening sail, factories are displacing tradesmen, and the immigrants are Irish – unwanted as ever. Young Finn O’Neill is learning the trade of a boatman from his father, when into Boston Harbor sails a Chinese junk, bearing mysteries, magic, and a firebrand named An-Ming. – This is the setting of Dean Whitlock’s new book Finn’s Clock. Dean will discuss his writing process and how he researched for an adventure novel set in 1850s Boston.
