Behind the Books: A Titanic Video

Ten days from today—April 14, 2012--will mark the hundredth anniversary of one of the most talked-about tragedies of all time—the sinking of the Titanic. And that means a whole slew of interesting books about the ill-fated ship are hitting bookstores and e-readers all over the world.
What makes my book special? Because National Geographic, my publisher, was one of the organizations who supported Bob Ballard’s exploration of the wreck in the 1980s and because science is my favorite topic, my book contains lots of information about the discovery and exploration of “the wonder ship.”

Recently, I created a video interview about my research and writing process for The Children’s Bookshelf, which is maintained by three fabulous professors of education and literature at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. Take a look.

  1. awesome video! Thanks for sharing your "voyage" of writing the "Titanic". It's like a mini-course in how to structure nf - especially how you included sidebars, mini-bios, "in their words".
    I learned a lot.
