Author Talk - Historical Book

Tuesday, August 7, 2018

Author Talk "Murder on the Abarenda" by Marvin W. Barrash non-fiction historical book (The prequel to U.S.S. CYCLOPS) The initial focus of the book concerns the heinous murder that took place on board the United States collier Abarenda in 1908. It soon comes to light that the brutal death of the ship’s second in command was but one of a series of terrible tragedies that befell a family. On the surface, Murder on the Abarenda appears to be a whodunit mystery story, in fact, it is anything but that. In their day, each of those incidences quickly became sensationalized stories in newspapers across the country. With the passage of time, those events slipped into obscurity - until now. Following the book talk there will be an update on the U.S.S. CYCLOPS research.
