Program Description

Event Details

Local author Mark Smeltz will discuss his book The Wreck of the Melville.

A lost manuscript from the late 1800s reveals the trials and tribulations of Gordon, a budding journalist cursed with a restless spirit. After stowing away on a sailing ship to meet his literary heroes travelling on board, Gordon is thrust into adventure and peril on the high seas—and beyond. The ship’s captain, on a harrowing quest to locate his missing sister, throws Gordon and the crew into conflict with forces not of this world. The young journalist will have to confront the treachery of his companions, the rage of the sea, and the cosmic threat of entities beyond his own imagination...if he has any hope of reaching shore again.
