Monday, May 18, 7 pm

Admission:  Free, RSVP by emailing

Author Chris Haraden recounts the history of our beloved Paragon Park in Hull. He’ll bring you into the past, into the pages of his new coffee table book, the first comprehensive book on the history of the beloved amusement park that opened on the shores of Nantasket Beach in 1905. Come learn all about the beginning and the end of this cherished park, share your memories, and ask Chris questions you’ve longed to have answered.  Mondays at the James is made possible by the generosity of the Cordelia Family Foundation and South Shore Music Circus.
