Have a beer with author Kathy Bergren Smith
August 12, 1955 was the deadliest day on the Chesapeake in modern times. Maritime journalist Kathy Bergren Smith recounts the tragic meeting of hurricane Connie and Levin J Marvel, a 128-foot commercial sailing vessel converted to “dude cruising.” The 68-year-old ship was no match for the hurricane; perhaps no ship would have been. Fourteen died when the ship broke apart in Herring Bay. Another 13 survived, most rescued by heroic citizens of the town of North Beach. Join the engaging storyteller over a local craft beer for the full story and signing of her new book, Deadly Gamble: The Wreck of Schooner Levin J Marvel. 5:30-7:30pm at Forward Brewing, 418 4th St, Annapolis: 443-221-7277.
