Author Gordon Forbes will be at Books on Beechwood on Sunday, December 5 from 1:00 – 3:00pm signing his book “We Are One: The Story of the Worst Peacetime Disaster in the History of the Canadian Navy.”
From the jacket:
“This book describes the background to that day [October 23, 1969], the details of the actions of the men during that horrible day, and the aftermath of the event culminating in the emotional gatherings for the fortieth anniversary in Plymouth, England and in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It is a story of everyday men doing heroic things to save their ship and of the emotional drain that haunted many of them for years afterward.”
Come by to meet the author, buy a book, and get it signed! We look forward to seeing you!
