Author Mac Smith, of Mainers on the Titanic, Illustrated Talk followed by Book Signing at Beyond the Sea Book Festival at Lincolnville Beach, Saturday, July 26th, 2:00-4:00
Mainers on the Titanic traces the stories of passengers on that fateful ship who had ties to Maine. Many of them were wealthy summer visitors to Bar Harbor, but there were other residents of state aboard as well. Their tales are retold, along with what was occurring in the state at the time. Meticulously researched, this book reveals the agonizing day-to-day wait of Mainers for news of what really happened and tells the stories of Maine passengers from their boarding to the sinking and rescue, and, for those who did not survive, of their final coming ashore in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It's a unique and fascinating addition to the Titanic story.
About the author: A Navy veteran of the first Gulf War and former news reporter for The Bar Harbor Times, Mac Smith lives in Stockton Springs, Maine, in the village of Sandy Point, where he is restoring the family homestead.
