Welcome!

Hi !

I’m Mary Bergman, a writer and historian living on Nantucket.

I am fascinated by the people, places, and landscapes that make up Cape Cod and the Islands. I have dedicated my work to helping to document the unique people and places here at the edge of the world.

I regularly contribute to A Cape Cod Notebook, a weekly nature/natural world radio essay program on WCAI, the Cape and Islands NPR Station. My work has also appeared in Historic NantucketN Magazine, The Common online, McSweeney’s Internet TendencyProvincetown Arts, and other places where great stories are told!
