Tuesday Speaker
Rochelle Pennington, Author and Speaker on the Edmund Fitzgerald
Memorial Hall
November 30 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

No other Great Lakes shipwreck is more well-known than the Edmund Fitzgerald, which disappeared into a stormy Lake Superior on November 10, 1975, when wind gusts peaked at nearly 100 miles per hour and waves reached the height of three-story buildings. the Edmund Fitzgerald remains the largest shipwreck on the Great Lakes to this day.

Pennington delves into the various theories and opposing views of dive detectives who are still trying to solve the mystery of what led to the demise of the 29-man crew.

Audience members will be led from the launch of the ship to its final radio broadcasts, and from the Fitz’s discovery on Superior’s bottom to the raising of artifacts from its watery grave.

Per speaker request, this program will NOT be livestreamed.
