Guest Author Set for Library Next Month
The following was submitted by the Stevens Memorial Library.
On Sunday, April 7 at 2:30 pm, author, Michael J. Tougias, will visit the Stevens Memorial Library in North Andover to discuss his book entitled, "A Storm Too Soon: A True Story of Survival and a Remarkable Rescue."
Author 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.
Tougias, known for his fast paced writing style and character-driven stories, tells this true saga in the present tense to give the reader an “edge of your seat, you are there” experience. "A Storm Too Soon" is a heart pounding read of survival, the power of the human spirit, and one of the most incredible rescues ever attempted.
Tougias enjoys doing slide presentations because he likes to transport the audience into the heart of the storm so that they ask themselves "what would I have done." The viewer can visually relive the adventure. "It’s like watching a movie with the author giving behind the scene details.” A book signing will follow the program, and the presentation is suitable for all ages.
This program is free and open to the public. Registration required. Further information, contact the Stevens Memorial Library Reference Desk at 978-688-9505, ext. 42016.
