Venue: Leamington Arts Centre
SEPTEMBER 25 – Discover the greatest mystery of the Great Lakes and hear the tale of THE WRECK OF THE GRIFFON, being presented at the Leamington Arts Centre~ 72 Talbot St. W, beginning at 7 pm.
Join Cris Kohl and Joan Forsberg, a husband-and-wife team of underwater explorers and authors of a new book called The Wreck of the Griffon, as they present a multi-media, live narration programme with visuals and background music telling the dramatic story of this long lost, historic ship, and the many times people thought they had found it.
The legendary vessel named the Griffon, built by the explorer, La Salle, in the year 1679, was the very first ship to sail on Lake Erie — but was lost with all hands and valuable cargo on the return leg of its maiden voyage. Since then, the fate of the Griffon has become the greatest mystery of the Great Lakes.
A book signing by the authors will follow the presentation. ADMISSION IS FREE.
