The Sea was in Their Blood Halifax Launch

Halifax Central Library

5440 Spring Garden Road, Halifax, Nova Scotia, B3J 1E9

Come see author Quentin Casey as he launches his new book The Sea was in Their Blood. The event will take place at the Halifax Central Library on Thursday, July 6th, at 6:30 p.m.

The Sea Was in Their Blood explores two key questions: who were the men aboard the Miss Ally, and why were they battered and sunk by a storm forecasted days in advance? Through interviews with the crew’s families and friends, rescue personnel, and members of the tight-knit fishing communities of Woods Harbour and Cape Sable Island, award-winning journalist Quentin Casey pieces together the tragic sinking–including important case details not previously reported–and weaves in the backstories of the Miss Ally‘s crew and the lingering effects of their disappearance.

A portion of the royalties from the sale of this book will be donated to various charitable causes associated with the Miss Ally.
