Rye’s Battle of the Century with Author Lisa Moll Sat. 6/18 at 1pm

Join the Rye Historical Society and Rye Public Library as they co-sponsor a book discussion and signing event!

In her new book Rye’s Battle of the Century: Saving the New Hampshire Seacoast from Olympic Oil, University of New Hampshire graduate student Lisa Moll reshapes local environmental history with extensive research revealing Rye’s crucial role in protecting the local environment.  In 1973-74, the Town of Rye drove the debate and defeat of Aristotle Onassis’ attempted construction of a massive marine terminal, pipeline and oil refinery along the Seacoast of New Hampshire.

Rye’s Battle of the Century adds new insights and people to the story, including a closer examination of Rye activists who battled the attempted marine terminal along the Isles of Shoals, thwarting Olympic’s efforts to create an industrial gateway into the state of New Hampshire.

Come meet the author, Lisa Moll, and Peter Horne, former Chair of Rye’s opposition group, Concerned Citizens of Rye (CCR). Copies of Rye’s Battle of the Century will be available for purchase at the event.
