So Close to Home & The Finest Hours with Michael Tougias

May 24, 2016 by Beth Colt

Michael J. Tougias, bestselling author and co-author of 24 books, will give a dramatic presentation based on his co-authored book So Close to Home.  Tougias will use slides of the attack, the survivors, and the rescue to make this “an edge-of-your seat” visual program. His book, The Finest Hours, will also be touched upon, as well as the making of the movie.

Please arrive early to reserve your seat(s). Doors will open at 6pm. The presentation is appropriate for all ages.

This program is made possible by the Trustees of the Falmouth Public Library.

—–

On May 19, 1942 a German U-boat in the Gulf of Mexico stalked its prey 50 miles off New Orleans. Captained by 29-year-old Erich Wurdemann, the submarine commander had his sights set on the freighter Heredia with 59 souls on board.  Most of the crew were merchant seamen, but there were also a handful of civilians including the Down’s family.  The family was comprised of the parents, Ray Sr. and Ina, along with their two children, eight year old Ray Jr., nick-named “Sonny”, and eleven year old Lucille.

Fast asleep in their berth the Down’s family had no notice that two torpedoes were heading their way.  When the ship exploded all four members of the family were separated from each other.  More than half the crew and passengers aboard the Heredia  perished, but incredibly, after 15 hours in the ocean – facing sharks, hypothermia, drowning, and dehydration—all the members of the Down’s family survived and were reunited. Ray Downs Jr. aka “Sonny” is now 80 years old but he remembers every detail of the voyage, the attack, and his family’s miraculous survival story.

SO CLOSE TO HOME  is a survival story and history book rolled into one, similar to Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken.  “I enjoy doing these programs,” says Tougias, “because I like to transport the audience into the heart of the storm so that they ask themselves ‘what would I have done.’  It’s like watching a movie with the author giving behind the scene details.” A book signing will follow the program, and the presentation is suitable for all ages.

Tougias, known for his fast paced writing style and character-driven stories, has written several true survival thrillers, including The Finest Hours, which is currently being made into a major motion picture by the Disney Corporation.  His other sea saga’s, include Rescue of the Bounty, Overboard!, Fatal Forecast, A Storm Too Soon, and Ten Hours Until Dawn.   On a lighter note, the author penned the award-winning memoir There’s A Porcupine In My Outhouse: Misadventures of a Mountain-man Wannabe. With his daughter Kristin he also co-authored The Cringe Chronicles: Mortifying Misadventures With My Dad.

Shrek the Musical

Choreography by DANIELLE  LATULIPPE

COMING  MAY 6-22, 2016!

FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS AT 7:30PM

& ONE SATURDAY MATINEE ON 5/14!

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….”

And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey

alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess, Fiona, who resists her rescue. 

Throw in a ‘short’-tempered bad guy, a cookie with  an attitude, and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits,

and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero.  Luckily, there’s one on hand….and his name is Shrek! 

Irreverently fun for the whole family. Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre.

Salt Marshes of the Cape

May 14, 2016 by Beth Colt

The second lecture in a series of three by naturalists from Long Pasture, the base of Mass Audubon’s mid-Cape operations.

In this illustrated presentation, Ian Ives, sanctuary director, will talk about salt marsh ecology.  Salt marshes are one of the most biologically rich communities in North America and are nurseries for many of the fish and shellfish Cape Codders rely so much upon.  Salt marshes are also invaluable for their pollution prevention and storm and flood reduction.  With increasing coastal development, many of Cape Cod’s salt marshes have become degraded.  Learn more about these rich habitats, the creatures within them and how to help protect them.

This program is appropriate for teens and adults.  No registration necessary.

The final lecture in the series is “Coastal Waterbirds,” by Chris Walz on Saturday, June 11 at 2 PM

Location: Hermann Foundation Meeting Room
