Unsinkable Author Talk

Virtual Author Talk: Tuesday, March 9 at 7:00 Register to receive your secure Zoom Link

James Sullivan discusses his new book Unsinkable, a true story of courage under fire on a battleship in World War II.

This thrilling and vividly told account is the story of the USS Plunkett, with a local connection. We will learn of three brave men from Fall River who were among the servicemen on board.

Sullivan’s account is based on Navy logs, war diaries, action reports, letters, journals, memoirs and dozens of interviews with the men who were on the ship and their families. 

On the day of the event, you will be emailed a Zoom link to join the meeting. Copies of Unsinkable will be available in the library.  

This program is sponsored by the Five Town Libraries, led by Fall River Public Library. The Five Libraries are Fall River Public Library, Somerset Public Library, Swansea Free Public Library, Berkley Public Library and Dighton Public Library.
