7:30 PM
Nahant Town Hall Stage

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Nahant Music Festival, along with Nahant Public Library and Nahant Historical Society, proudly present The New York Times bestselling Author Michael J. Tougias to Nahant Town Hall for one night only – free and open to the public on Tuesday, June 11 2019 at 7:30 PM. He will present a talk with slide projections about his book "Ten Hours Until Dawn," the Blizzard of 1978, and the Can Do shipwreck.

Michael J. Tougias is a New York Times bestselling author and co-author of 29 books. Among his bestsellers are The Finest Hours (Disney Motion Pictures' version opened in 45 countries in January 2016), Fatal Forecast, Overboard, King Philip's War, and There's A Porcupine In My Outhouse: The Vermont Misadventures of a Mountain Man Wannabe. Tougias lectures across the country on each of his book topics. He also offers leadership/inspirational programs for business groups, and has spoken to companies and organizations such as General Dynamics, Raytheon, Massachusetts School Library Association, New York University Surgeons Round Table and many more.

The event will give context to Berklee College of Music Professor of Composition Francine Trester's one act opera, "Keepers of the Light," based on the same story. It will be given its world premiere by Nahant Music Festival Donald R. Wilkinson Vocal Apprentices later in the week. Donald Wilkinson (1961-2018), our founder, has close connection to this story, as his father was a member of the ship crew and perished in the storm.
