An Evening with Author Michael Tougias

Join us on Thursday, October 11 at 7:00 for an evening with New York Times bestseller author Michael Tougias. He will be talking about his newest book “Above & Beyond: JFK and the U-2 Pilots During the Cuban Missile Crisis.” In this presentation Michael first chronicles the thirteen harrowing days of the Cuban Missile Crisis and then outlines the steps President Kennedy made to reach a decision on a course of action. Books will be available for sale and signing after the presentation.

Michael Tougias is a NY Times Bestselling author and co-author of 29 books. He is best known for his book “The Finest Hours” which is a major motion picture. His first maritime book, “Ten Hours Until Dawn”, a true story of heroism off the coast of Massachusetts during the Blizzard of 1978, was selected by the American Library Association as one of the “Top Books of the Year.” When he is not writing he is either fishing on the ocean or trout fishing in northern rivers. Michael splits his time between Florida, Massachusetts and a cabin in Vermont.
