On January 9, 2019 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston will honor the release of celebrated sea turtle conservationist Sally Murphy’s new memoir Turning the Tide, with a special guest appearance by best-selling author Mary Alice Monroe.
Turning the Tide chronicles the creation of South Carolina’s sea turtle program, the evolution of the International Sea Turtle Society and the ACE Basin, and documents the decades-long battle for use of turtle excluder devices (TEDs) to protect sea turtles. Filled with stories, both funny and sad Turning the Tide describes one woman’s triumphs, both personal and professional, against tough odds.
