Author Talk: Gloucester Gale

August 3, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Dan Fuller is the author of “Gloucester Gale”, the true story of Captain Joseph Silveira and the swordfishing schooner “Dorcas” during the August Gale of 1924. In this vivid narrative about men battling against a raging force of nature during the bygone age of wooden ships and harpoons, Dan reconstructs the events of that hurricane and the “Dorcas”, the impact to the rest of the fleet out at Georges Bank, and their loved ones back in Gloucester. Dan is a direct descendent of Captain Silveira, and this story has been part of his family’s folklore for generations. Dan has always been captivated by the sea. He currently splits his time seasonally between Cape Cod Bay and Tampa Bay.
