Nautical Nights Autumn Book Signing
October 12, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Never Say P*G: The Book of Sailors’ Superstitions is the quintessential book for anyone interested in sailing or maritime pursuits. In this easy-to-use and attractive volume, superstitions are listed in alphabetical order, so readers can savour the book by limiting themselves to a single entry a day or skip ahead to discover the background behind their own practices.
Covering maritime superstitions from coast to coast, including the Great Lakes of Canada, Never Say P*G explains A: why killing an albatross is bad luck, but seeing one is good luck—to B: why bananas are so feared that some sailors only refer to them as “that curved yellow fruit”—to C: clapping aboard a ship will bring thunder. Macdonald has written an all-around informative, entertaining and in-depth look at sailors’ superstitions and their origins.
