Description

The Register Book Club presents Shark Stories.

Shark bite survivors Leeanne Ericson and Maria Korcsmaros come together for the first time to share their stories of how they miraculously survived great white shark attacks in local waters.

Ericson was attacked off San Onofre State Beach a year ago, and Korcsmaros survived after being bit off Newport Beach while swimming two years ago.

The discussion will include some of their rescuers, as well as experts who can shed light on the uptick of shark activity and what surfers and water enthusiasts want to know as we head into summer - is it safe to get in the water?

Panel discussion will be moderated by reporter Laylan Connelly, with special guests Chris Lowe, shark conservationist David McGuire, founder of the Shark Research Committee Ralph Collier, and world champion surfer Ian Cairns, who is leading an effort to implement Shark Mitigation Systems.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m., cash bar available.
