My friend, Melanie Dent, is helping me co-host Titanic Week. Right here on my site! It has been a true honor to co-organize this event. I’ve never done anything like it, and I have Melanie to thank. Her first novel, The Lynchcliffe Cuckoo, begins during the pre-World War I era, and the Titanic tragedy is a focal point in at least two of her novels. She has graciously provided interviews, blog excerpts, and some Titanic links in order to commemorate the event.
Please remember those who perished in the tragedy, by visiting the following link: http://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-victims/. It is truly saddening when you read the names on this list: men, women, children, and infants died when the Titanic struck the iceberg and subsequently sank.
Please visit Titanic Week on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/events/263411847086225/ and stop by my site each day for more Titanic Week posts.
Melanie and I compiled some links if you’re interested in learning more about the Titanic tragedy, or if you’d like to keep up to date on centenary events:
