East Islip Middle School Book Club hosts “Sea” survivor Aldridge thumbnail199773

Led by library media specialist Melanie Ash, the East Islip Middle School Book Club hosted a visit with author John Aldridge on Oct. 6. Aldridge's 2017 book, “A Speck in the Sea,” details the night he fell off his lobster boat in Montauk and survived over 12 hours in the water before being rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Book Club members asked questions specific to the book and Aldridge’s experience in the water. At the end, the students had a chance to take photos with Aldridge and get their books signed.
