Wrentham Cable Access has invited author Michael Tougias to give a personal presentation of his latest book; A Storm Too Soon. On February 13th at 7 pm, in the Wrentham Developmental Center Auditorium, Tougias will give a two part presentation. The first part will be a slide lecture regarding his book.
Three other vessels with 10 people aboard were caught in the storm, and only 6 survived. This 2007 disaster prompted one of the largest and most intense rescues in Coast Guard history. Tougias will use slides of the storm, the survivors, and the rescue. Amazingly the Coast Guard helicopter crew photographed the men in the raft being pounded by towering waves.
A book signing will follow the programs, and the presentations are suitable for all ages. The evening events will end at 8:45. Admission is free and everyone is invited to attend.
