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 unique ways of life 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 Island’s NPR Station. My work has also appeared in Historic Nantucket, N Magazine, The Common online, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, Provincetown Arts, and other places where great stories are told!
