Daniel Stone - Sinkable: Obsession, the Deep Sea, and the Shipwreck of the Titanic
TICKETS available at the door. Doors open at 1:30 PM
Explore Daniel Stone’s new book SINKABLE: Obsession, the Deep Sea, and the Shipwreck of the Titanic – a dive into the incredible culture of shipwrecks in human history. Using the world’s most famous wreck, the Titanic, as a lens to explore the topic, SINKABLE is part narrative history and part adventure, filled with colorful characters and fascinating science that reveals a crucial part of the Titanic’s story almost no one ever examines: what happened after the ship sank.
Brimming with humor, curiosity and wit, Sinkable follows in the tradition of Susan Orlean and Bill Bryson, offering up a page-turning work of personal journalism and an immensely entertaining romp through the deep sea and the nature of obsession.
Daniel Stone is the author of the national bestseller The Food Explorer, a former staff writer for National Geographic and a former White House correspondent for Newsweek and The Daily Beast. He holds degrees from UC Davis and Johns Hopkins University.
Books will be available at the program.
