Shark Assault author coming to Kawartha Lakes Library

Filed under: ,
September 20, 2016 - Canadian author Peter Jennings will be coming to the Kawartha Lakes Library, Lindsay Branch, on Monday September 26 at 7pm for a presentation of his new book, Shark Assault: An Amazing Story of Survival.

Shark Assault details the true story of Nicole Moore, a nurse from Orangeville, Ontario, who was savagely attacked twice by a bull shark while standing waist-deep in the ocean at a resort in Cancun, Mexico. Moore came close to dying, losing more than 60% of her blood, and as a result of the attacks, her left arm was amputated and she nearly lost her leg. These developments, and more, are covered in the book.

"What readers find really striking about this story is Nicole's strength of mind," comments Jennings. “Not only did she survive the brutality of the shark strikes, she also overcame some miserable incidents in her youth that would have sidelined most of us. She's quite amazing."

Kawartha Lakes Library acknowledges the financial assistance of the Canada Council through The Writers’ Union of Canada for this event.
