Atlantic Book Awards: Janet Maybee Presentation

Maritime Museum of the Atlantic

1675 Lower Water Street, Halifax

As the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Halifax Explosion draws closer, curiosity is building among visitors to the city. Will they receive accurate answers? Janet Maybee will offer a session on Explosion myths and truths, working to change the century-old narrative that unfairly blames one harbour pilot for so much death and destruction, as explained in her book Aftershock: The Halifax Explosion and the Persecution of Pilot Francis Mackey, shortlisted for two Atlantic Book Awards. Special guests include representatives from HMCS Sackville, Pier 21, Shipfax/Harbour Watcher, Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and the Atlantic Pilotage Authority. Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, 1675 Lower Water St., Halifax.
