In November 1898, a perfect storm formed off the New England coast. Conditions would produce a blizzard with 100 miles per hour winds and 60-foot waves that pummeled the coast. The SS Portland, a solid and luxurious ship with some 200 people aboard, ran aground off of Cape Cod. The ship is remembered as “New England’s Titanic.”

Author J. North Conway has created a personal, visceral account of the sinking and the times and the people involved, with stories to bring readers onto the Portland that day.

Free and open to the public.

The Council on Aging is located at 665 Center Street, Hanover, MA.
