Re: April 6, 2:00 p.m., Marine Museum at Fall River
Michael Tougias, noted author and lecturer, marine historian, sailor, and bon vivant, has co-authored a new book, Rescue of the Bounty: Disaster and Survival in Superstorm Sandy, with Douglas A. Campbell. The book investigates the harrowing journey of a tall ship caught up in Hurricane Sandy’s gale … and the consequences of that journey to the crew and the ship. Kirkus Reviews has described the book as “A taut recounting of a needless maritime tragedy.”
Mr. Tougias will share his insights into this tragedy—the motivations of the captain in deciding to sail; the horror of a hurricane at sea; the dramatic efforts of the Coast Guard to rescue crew; and the lasting impact of the voyage on crew members and their families. This is a narrated, gripping slide presentation that puts the audience right in the middle of the story and events.
Join us at the Marine Museum at Fall River on April 6th at 2:00 pm to hear the tale. Bring a friend and family member! Please post to your social media network.
This free event is sponsored by a grant from the Mass Cultural Council and is open to members and the public, alike. Don’t miss this compelling talk!

−RWU President’s Distinguished Speakers Series: Poet Richard Blanco @ Roger Williams University School of Law7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
A prolific writer, Richard Blanco’s poetry explores the intersections of his identity as a Cuban-American and openly gay poet and engineer whose journey has taken him from the shores of Miami to the foothills of rural Maine to the White House, where he became the youngest and the first Latino, immigrant and gay writer in U.S. history to serve as the inaugural poet at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration. His poem, “One Today,” was written specifically for the occasion and reflects Blanco’s understanding of what it means to be an American and together.
Driven by the belief that poetry has the power to connect communities, Blanco’s writing has been lauded for illuminating the human spirit. In 2013, he wrote and performed “Boston Strong,” to celebrate a community wounded but unbroken by the Boston Marathon bombings. For poet and for reader, Blanco’s writing is an exploration of culture, contradiction and connections that invites us to see ourselves alongside him as we search for our own sense of home, belonging and identity.
On April 15, you are invited to share Blanco’s journey across physical and personal landscapes as he shares selected works with the University community. A book signing will immediately follow.
The event will be held in the School of Law, Appellate Courtroom 283. It is free and open to the public; no tickets are required.+7:30 pmRWU President’s Distinguished Speakers Series: Poet Richard Blanco @ Roger Williams University School of Law
