University of South Alabama to Show Documentary
“In the Path of the Storms”


The University of South Alabama’s History and English Departments will be showing a new documentary called “In the Path of the Storms” on Nov. 3.

Produced by the Alabama Center for Public Television, the film is adapted from the book of the same title, co-authored by USA’s own Frye Gaillard. The documentary, produced and directed by award-winning film veteran Mike Letcher and co-producers Sheila Hagler and Peggy Denniston, tells the story of Bayou La Batre and the fishing villages on the Alabama coast.

The showing is free to the general public and will be held in Room 150 of the Humanities building at 6:30 p.m.
