An Evening with Author Charles Doane
Join in for an evening with local author Charles J. Doane as he presents his latest book, “The Boy Who Fell to Shore: The Extraordinary Life and Mysterious Disappearance of Thomas Thor Tangvald”.Charles J. Doane, an accomplished bluewater sailor, and longtime sailing journalist, tracks Thomas and his father, Peter, (a renowned but controversial sailor and author), across thousands of ocean miles through intimate interviews, personal correspondence, documentary research, and first-hand experience of the tropical anchorages and passage routes they frequented. This biography is by turns inspiring, terrifying, beautiful, and infuriating as Doane deftly explores the great cost of living freely at the whim of wind and water. Charles will share photos of Thomas Tangvald and his family and read a few short passages. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing after the event.
