During Thanksgiving week, 1905, the Mataafa Storm swept over Lake Superior, damaging or destroying 29 ships, claiming dozens of lives, and causing millions of dollars in damages. Curt Brown, author of So Terrible a Storm: A Tale of Fury on Lake Superior, will present on the storm and its aftermath.
“Not since Sebastian Junger in The Perfect Storm has a writer captured so well the fury of the seas as Curt Brown.” —The Maritime Executive
