Join award-winning author Wendy Hinman as she discusses Sea Trials, her suspenseful tale of the Wilcox family and their struggles in pursuit of a dream to sail around the world. It’s a true story of the determination and survival of parents and their teenage children as they face of shipwreck, wild weather, pirates, thieves, gun boats, mines, scurvy, and starvation. She’ll also share stories from her own 7-year 34,000-mile adventure aboard a 31-foot boat with the teenaged hero of Sea Trials, now all grown up. Despite being shipwrecked as a boy, he was eager for another ocean voyage. Her first book, Tightwads on the Loose, which details their adventures has been a hit for years.
