The British luxury passenger liner The Titanic sank on April 15, 1912, and there has been no shortage of books and films to commemorate the tragic event. Although the 1997 epic with Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio may be the first thing that comes to mind, there is a wealth of books available for those of us who want to learn more about the fascinating cast of characters on this doomed voyage.
If you’re looking for fiction, try Kate Alcott’s The Dressmaker or Jack Finney’s time-traveling novel From Time to Time. For nonfiction, read Titanic Survivor: The Newly Discovered Memoirs of Violet Jessop Who Survived Both the Titanic and the Britannic Disasters or Voyagers of the Titanic: Passengers, Sailors, Shipbuilders, Aristocrats, and the Worlds They Came From. And, if you’re looking for a classic, there’s always A Night To Remember.
