Maritime Museum of the Atlantic – Book Tour – The Great Halifax Explosion

October 10 @ 7:00 pm

In this presentation, you’ll hear the astonishing true story of history’s largest manmade explosion before the atomic bomb and its world-changing aftermath, from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author John U. Bacon. He will tell the story of tragedy and heroism most Haligonians know, but from a fresh perspective, framing it in the context of US-Canadian relations, and introducing new characters based on original research. He will also explain how he was drawn to the subject, and why it’s important that both Canadians and Americans remember the lessons of how good people respond to a crisis, both individually and collectively.
