It's the centennial of the sinking of the Titanic. Learn about another amazingly catastrophic shipwreck - the 1956 collision of the SS Andrea Doria and the MS Stockholm - from a very personal viewpoint - - that of a SHIPWRECK SURVIVOR.
Pierette Domenica Simpson returns to AADL to share her personal and harrowing account of this traumatic event. She is the only survivor in history to write a complete account of the disaster, "Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History." Her new young adult novel is "I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria: The Titanic of the 1950s." Books will be for sale and this event will also include a book signing.
