What is POWER OF SAIL about?

POWER OF SAIL is a moral thriller that investigates the thin line between hate and freedom of speech - who bears the ultimate cost? The story centres on Harvard professor Charles Nichols and how all hell breaks loose when he invites a contentious white nationalist to his yearly symposium. His colleagues are concerned about how this will affect both his reputation and the University's; his students are forcefully protesting.

However. Charles refuses to budge. Does he have another agenda?
