Perhaps, because the written word can stir emotion and imagination unlike anything else,” says Mary Kellogg-Joslyn, co-owner of the Titanic Museum Attraction. “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.”

Luke Copas, 11, is the youngest author displaying his work at the Titanic. Copas wrote his first book at the age of 8.

"It's been really fun and exciting. I know that I'll never know the full story unless I study," said Copas. "The thing that interests me the most is that there were very many heros, there were a bunch of good people and there were so many people who lost their lives and I feel like this should be a tribute to them."
