            The Kodiak Maritime History Museum's annual fundraising dinner, "Tastes and Tales from the Sea" will be held Saturday. This year's guest speaker will be Katie Ringsmuth, a historian for the National Park Service. She'll be giving a presentation based on her book "Buried Dreams, the Rise and Fall of a Clam Cannery on the Katmai Coast."

            The doors open at Tastes and Tales from the Sea at 6 p.m. Saturday night. It will be held this year at the new Harbor Convention Center. Chef Joel Chenet will once again provide the seafood meal. Tickets are available from museum board members.

            Ringsmuth was a guest on KMXT's Talk of the Rock this week, along with Maritime Museum director Toby Sullivan. Ringsmuth said there were stories of workers being Shanghaied from Kodiak to work in the cannery. Sullivan said he's heard similar tales:
