Best-selling author to present survival story

 Author Michael Tougias will present a slide presentation of his book, “Fatal Forecast: An Incredible True Tale of Disaster and Survival at Sea” at Taylor Community Wednesday, July 10 at 7 p.m.

In November 1980, two fishing vessels set out from Cape Cod to Georges Bank. The National Weather Service had forecast typical fall weather in the area, even though the organization knew its only weather buoy at George’s Bank was malfunctioning. Soon after the boats reached the fishing ground, they were hit with hurricane force winds and massive, 60-foot waves that battered them for hours.

Using slides from the actual storm and rescue, Tougias will explain one of the most remarkable survival stories ever recorded. This is an edge-of-your-seat tale you won’t want to miss

The program is made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council and is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is requested to ensure seating. Please call 524-5600 Monday-Friday from 8-4 p.m., or email rsvp@taylorcommunity.org anytime for reservations.

Tougias is the author of 19 books. He will be available for book purchases and signings before and after the program.
