A Speck in the Sea Authors
December 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In the dead of night on July 24, 2013, John Aldridge was thrown off the Anna Mary while his fishing partner, Anthony Sosinski, slept below. As hours ticked by, Sosinski, the families, local fishing community, and US Coast Guard in three states mobilized in an unprecedented search effort that culminated in a rare and exhilarating success. Aldridge’s first-person account intertwines with the narrative of the massive, constantly evolving rescue operation designed to save him. A Speck in the Sea is a tale of survival, perseverance and community, and tells of one man’s struggle to survive as friends and strangers work separately, and together, to bring him home. Aldridge and Sosinski co-own and operate the Anna Mary, a lobster boat, in the open ocean surrounding Montauk. They have been best friends for decades and are seasoned sailors and fishermen. Come meet these fascinating men, hear their stories. They will be signing copies of A Speck in the Sea. Wouldn’t an autographed copy make a nice gift for the holiday?
