Authors of best-selling Titanic-themed books to be featured in Titanic outdoor book fair
PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (March 2013) – For the first time, 10 celebrated authors of Titanic historical books and novels will make their public appearances together on Monday, April 1, through Sunday, April 7, from 10am – 5pm at the Titanic Museum Attraction’s First Annual Titanic Authors’ Week in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., according to Titanic Museum Attraction co-owner Mary Kellogg-Joslyn.
There have been hundreds of Titanic books written about the legendary ship — books written from every possible perspective. Now, all Titanic fans and followers will have the opportunity to meet and interact with authors of many of these remarkable books during this unprecedented, six-day book signing event.
The free book signing fair will be outside in the parking lot of the museum attraction. Each author will have his or her own tented reception area where visitors can engage him or her in their favorite subject – Titanic. Photos with the authors can be taken during book signings.
Titanic books purchased at the fair will entitle the buyers to discounted admission to the Titanic Museum Attraction, which features “Discover the Children of Titanic,” an amazing new gallery dedicated to Titanic’s smallest heroes.
“We know that Titanic books are the biggest selling items in our gift shop. Grown-ups and children alike are drawn to them, perhaps because the written word can stir emotion and imagination unlike anything else,” says Kellogg-Joslyn.
“Each book, in its own way, is a chronicle of faith, heroism, sacrifice and survival. They line the shelves of libraries and private homes around the world, and we’re proud to be one of the largest repositories of Titanic books, anywhere. So, bookmark the date, Monday, April 1, through Sunday, April 7, and plan to join us. I hope you do,” she said.
