This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the voyage of the RMS Titanic, which left England for New York on April 10, 1912 and sank to the bottom of the Atlantic four days later. Even decades after the ship’s sinking, the story of the Titanic still fascinates people.
Scholastic has published several great fiction and non-fiction books about the ship, and to find out why Titanic is still such a captivating subject, we spoke to Deborah Hopkinson, Lauren Tarshis, Gordan Korman and Suzanne Weyn, some of our Titanic author-experts. Check out the slideshow below to read about why each decided to write about the Titanic, how they did their research and what they learned in the process of writing their books.
