We are pleased to announce that this year’s book for One Book One Valley will be The Finest Hours:
The True Story of the U.S. Coast Guard’s Most Daring Sea Rescue by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman.
The book describes the simultaneous rescue missions for two oil tankers, each of which split in two during a severe winter storm off the coast of Cape Cod in 1952. It is a fast-paced, thrilling read, and it comes in a young reader’s version as well as the original adult edition. A feature film based on the book was released in theaters in January 2016.
Events will begin in September. Check back for updates!
