We look forward to seeing you all online!

National bestselling author Daniel Stone, who spoke to us about The Food Explorer, will speak virtually about his latest book about the world’s most famous shipwreck, the RMS Titanic. In Sinkable, Stone spins a fascinating tale of history, science, and obsession, uncovering the untold story of the Titanic not as a ship but as a shipwreck. Brimming with humor, curiosity and wit, Sinkable is a page-turning work of personal journalism and an immensely entertaining romp through the deep sea and the nature of obsession. 

Daniel Stone is a national bestselling writer on adventure, history, and science. He is a senior editor for National Geographic and a former White House correspondent for Newsweek. His first book, The Food Explorer, was a national bestseller and selected as the American Horticultural Society’s book of the year. The Food Explorer is currently in development for a TV series. His book Sinkable, released in2022, is about shipwrecks, the deep sea, and the strange underworld of shipwreck obsession. He has written for Time Magazine, The Washington Post, Vice, Literary Hub, and has presented at the National Academy of Sciences. He is a professor of environmental science and policy at Johns Hopkins University.
