‘A Speck in the Sea’ Panel at Dan’s Literary Festival

Anyone who attended the 2017 Dan’s Literary Festival came away remembering the gripping conversation about A Speck in the Sea between authors John Aldridge and Anthony Sosinski, local rocker Nancy Atlas and Dan’s Hamptons Media CEO Eric Feil.

The audience was captivated as Feil interviewed Aldridge and Sosinki about the day Aldridge fell off their fishing boat and watched it drive off into the dawn, leaving him alone in open ocean with no land in sight.

If you didn’t make it to the festival, watch the entire conversation here, as the fisherman and Atlas relive Aldridge’s harrowing tale of survival, the powerful community effort as Montauk came together to find him, and his heroic rescue by the U.S. Coast Guard.

A Speck in the Sea is a great read, and will soon be a motion picture from the Weinstein Company.
