Interview with Mac Smith, author of ‘Mainers on the Titanic’

NEW VINEYARD - New Vineyard Library is pleased to welcome Mac Smith, author of the book Mainers on the Titanic on Sept. 30, at 11 a.m.

Mainers on the Titanic traces the stories of passengers on that fateful ship who had ties to Maine. Many of them were wealthy summer visitors to Mount Desert Island, but there were many other residents of the state aboard as well. Their tales are retold in a lively way here, along with the sinking-related events in the state at that time.

Meticulously researched, this book reveals the agonizing day-to-day wait of Mainers for news of what really happened to their loved ones aboard and tells the stories of Maine passengers from their boarding to the sinking, rescue, and arrival back in the country, and, for those who did not survive, their final coming ashore in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It's a unique and fascinating addition to the Titanic story and to Maine history.

A Navy veteran of the First Gulf War and former news reporter for the Bar Harbor Times, Mac Smith lives in Stockton Springs, Maine, in the village of Sandy Point, where he is restoring the family homestead. Smith was kind enough to answer a few questions regarding the book, his first.
