Ms. Preston talked about her book Lusitania: An Epic Tragedy, published by Walker and Company. The book describes the events of May 7, 1915, on which the British passenger ship Lusitania was sunk by a German U-Boat, killing 1,200 people, including businessman Alfred Vanderbilt and author Elbert Hubbard. Ms. Preston described the human drama of the attack, and the enduring controversies surrounding the incident. The Lusitania’s sinking was of particular importance because 128 of those killed on the ship were Americans. This caused the United States to enter World War I shortly thereafter. close
