Acclaimed Author to Speak About Historical NJ Shark Attacks May 08, 2019
From: 7:00PM To: 7:00PM

Did you know that the first U.S. shark attack on swimmers happened at the Jersey Shore?  In July 1916, a lone Great White Shark swam close to shore and sent panic through nearby communities for weeks. Several people died; with blood in the water, scientists wondered how they could stop a dangerous, unpredictable predator before any more people perished.

On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at 7 p.m., the Historical Society of Moorestown and the Moorestown Library are co-hosting a titillating talk by Michael Capuzzo, a Pulitzer Prize nominee and author of the New York Times best-seller Close to Shore, to tell this tale of the historical “Jaws.”  Before you go to the shore this Memorial Day Weekend, be sure to come to the Library at 111 W. 2nd St., Moorestown NJ 08057 to hear this gripping story.

Michael Capuzzo is the author of the critically acclaimed New York Times nonfiction bestsellers Close to Shore and The Murder Room. He has written for The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Miami Herald, Sports Illustrated, Esquire, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post; is a six-time Pulitzer Prize nominee; and has been twice nominated for the National Book Award.

Close to Shore is a historical thriller about the 1916 NJ shark attacks that inspired the book and movie JAWS. It was recently optioned by SONY Pictures Television for a proposed mini-series.

This event is free. Please contact the Moorestown Library to reserve your seat at 856-234-0333.

Phone: 856-235-0353
