In A Long Petal of the Sea, Roser and Victor escape exile after the Spanish Civil War to build a new life in Chile on a ship chartered by Pablo Neruda. Join SBPL for a discussion of the book All Hands on Deck: A Modern Day High Seas Adventure to the Far Side of the World by Will Sofrin to learn a bit about what their journey would have been like. This title was selected to complement the novel A Long Petal of the Sea. Books are available in advance by registering through this event or attending the author's presentation on November 6.
