Author Penn Wallace

Reading, discussion and signing of “Blue Water & Me.” The book is a high-adventure story of 11-year-old Wallace’s magical first summer fishing with his father, “Blue Water Charlie.” The pair begins their adventure by ramming a 30,000 ton Japanese freighter. Charlie regales Penn with old-time fish stories. Penn swims with dolphins and explores desert islands. Finally, the pair fight for their lives when caught in an out of season hurricane. It is a story of father-son bonding that everyone should read.
