Teeth of the Sea

Maggie Shannon grew up in Martha’s Vineyard, a Massachusetts island best known as a summer beach colony. Teeth of the Sea explores Islanders’ ambivalent relationship with the sea and with outsiders by focusing on the enduring memory of two historical events: the 1969 tragic drowning of Mary Jo Kopeckne, which ended the presidential hopes of Senator Edward Kennedy; and the 1975 making of Steven Spielberg’s thriller Jaws, which employed local residents as extras.
