Looking ahead to Staley Sednoui’s book-group gathering next Tuesday night and to events in April: A presentation at the Princeton Public Library, April 5th; at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, April 12th; at the Roger Sherman Inn in New Canaan CT, April 14th, the night of the Centennial commemoration; and a few days at the Branson/Pigeon Forge Titanic museum in Tennessee for book signing.

A hundred years ago at this time, imagine the Titanic being prepared, stocked, polished; the crew about to be reshuffled; Karl Behr and Helen Newsom planning their trip abroad at a dinner table in New York. . .and now so many people bustling to make the centenary memorable.

I am ever grateful for any input, or helpful comments. Spring is around the bend!
