Meet the Authors: A Speck in the Sea

760 Ocean Avenue
Bohemia, New York 11716

Please join us at the library to meet the authors, two Oakdale natives who will share their daring true story. In the early morning hours of July 24, 2013, fisherman John Aldridge fell overboard his lobster fishing boat, the Anna Mary, spending 12 harrowing hours in the cold Atlantic. His partner and best friend, Anthony Sosinksi, asleep below deck, woke to the realization and a search and rescue mission began. The book, a story of tenacity, survival and enduring friendship, began as a New York Times feature story and is now in priority development as a major motion picture from the Weinstein Company. Books will be available for purchase.
