Maine Calling Book Club: "August Gale" by Barbara Walsh
This month the discussion takes up Barbara Walsh's memoir "August Gale - A Father and Daughter's Journey into the Storm." It reads like fiction and tells the story of a fisherman fighting an unforgiving sea, a father who abandons his son, family secrets and reconciliation.
GUESTS: Jon Keller, author of the novel "Of Sea and Cloud." He's worked on lobster boats and now works as a clam digger.
