The Eye of the Whale

Jennifer O’Connell's new book, The Eye of the Whale,  brings to life the true story of a humpback whale disentanglement rescue that took place off the coast of California in 2005. Once freed, the whale’s rare and remarkable behavior toward the divers reflected a powerful connection and has been celebrated around the world.

Eye of the Whale Book LaunchJennifer launched her book at the Bethesda Library in June, sharing her painting of a full-size whale tail.
