The July 13, 1890 capsizing of the steamer Sea Wing and death of 98 of its passengers horrified Minnesota and the nation. Author Frederick Johnson's book The Sea Wing Disaster: Tragedy on Lake Pepin captures the terror and desperation of the vessel's 215 crew and passengers as the tragedy unfolded and the four days of anguish that followed. Johnson's presentation makes use of documents, letters, maps, interviews, newspapers, and magazines to inform listeners of exactly how and why the accident occurred. He also shares the remarkably complete and graphic photographic record developed at the scene. 7 p.m., 417 University Square.
