Quincy College Meet the Author Night with Neil Swidey
Tuesday, April 29, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Quincy College, in partnership with the Thomas Crane Public Library, is hosting Meet the Author Night with Neil Swidey.
Neil Swidey is the author of Trapped Under the Sea: One Engineering Marvel, Five Men, and a Disaster Ten Miles Into the Darkness.
25 years ago Boston Harbor was the filthiest in the nation - the fins were literally rotting off of the fish. Today we have the cleanest urban harbor in America, but it came at a price. Come learn the human cost of the clean up of Boston Harbor.
Swidey will lead a discussion about the harrowing story of five men who were sent into a dark, airless, miles-long tunnel, hundreds of feet below the ocean to do a nearly impossible job-with deadly results.
A question and answer session will follow.
Free and open to the public.
