USS Indianapolis – The Legacy, Book Signing

Join authors Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic to discuss the true story of the worst sea disaster in U.S. Naval History and the fifty-year fight to exonerate the ship’s skipper, Captain Charles McVay III, who was wrongly court-martialed for the sinking.

Vincent and Vladic interviewed 107 survivors and witnesses along with conducting extensive research to provide the most complete picture of the worst sea disaster in United States naval history. At this unique event you’ll have the opportunity to hear directly from the authors and ask questions. Barnes & Noble will be on hand to sell books.

Tickets to the event are free and reservations are encouraged. Please complete the form below to reserve your seat.
