Pulitzer Prize Winner Barbara Walsh
Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Barbara Walsh will discuss her book, "August Gale: A Father and Daughter’s Journey into the Storm".
Following her talk, she will sign both August Gale and her children's book, Sammy in the Sky, which is illustrated by painter Jamie Wyeth. Books will be for sale at the talk.
In August Gale, Walsh—who has interviewed killers, bad cops, and crooked politicians in the course of her career — takes readers on two heartrending odysseys: one into a deadly Newfoundland hurricane and the lives of Irish Catholic fishermen who relied on God and the wind to carry them home; the other, into a squall stirred by a man with many secrets: a grandfather who remained a mystery until long after his death.
