Join local author Lloyd Cunningham for a presentation on his book “The Death Boat”, Wednesday, June 22, at 6:30 p.m., at Milford Memorial Library. In the twilight of a summer evening, on an Iowa lake in 1929, two speedboats collided. Nine people were killed, and boating in the state was changed forever. Friction, even sabotage, ensued as the boat operators competed to become king of the lake. The enduring mysteries of the crash long have remained in the dark. "The Death Boat" pieces together newspaper stories, survivor accounts, public letters and private correspondence, witness testimony, supreme court decisions, and government records that shed light on those mysteries.
