Join MCPL Wausau for film based on best-selling book The Finest Hours
The public is invited to watch the riveting film adaptation of the 2010 bestselling book The Finest Hours on July 6 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Marathon County Public Library’s Wausau Headquarters, 300 N. First St., Wausau.
Based on The Finest Hours by authors Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman, this 2016 film tells the story of the 1952 rescue attempt by a Coast Guard team to save a crew from an oil tanker that split in half off the coast of Cape Cod. The film stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Eric Bana, is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 117 minutes.
MCPL’s screening of the film is in collaboration with local community organization A Walk in Their Shoes, who will bring in Tougias and Matt Manske, whose father Ervin was one of the Coast Guard crew members on the mission, to talk with the public during a special event the following week.
This event is free and open to the public with no registration required. For more information, call 715-261-7230 or visit https://mcpl.us/events/?event_id=3810.
