Celia Thaxter & Appledore Island
Presented by Marie Nickerson
Celia Thaxter was a poet and story writer who lived her life on Appledore, in the Isles of Shoals, serving as host for her father’s famous Appledore House hotel. She was also a gardener. Her book, An Island Garden, published in 1894, inspired the Shoals Marine Laboratory to restore the gardens she grew up with in front of the hotel.
