Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Barbara Walsh will speak Thursday, April 26

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Barbara Walsh will speak Thursday, April 26, 6:30 p.m. at the Wilton Free Public Library about her new 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. For more information, contact the library at (207) 645-4831.
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 schooner 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.
Sixty-eight years after the hurricane that claimed several of her Marystown ancestors, Walsh searches for memories of the August gale and the grandfather who abandoned her dad as a young boy. Together, she and her father journey to Newfoundland to learn about the 1935 storm, and along the way her dad begins to talk about the man he cannot forgive.
