Book signing: William M. Fowler Jr.
Join us for a book signing of Steam Titans: Cunard, Collins, and the Epic Battle for Commerce on the North Atlantic by William M. Fowler Jr.
“Steam Titans” tells the story of a transatlantic fight to wrest control of the globe’s most lucrative trade route. Two men – Samuel Cunard and Edward Knight Collins – and two nations wielded the tools of technology, finance, and politics to compete for control of a commercial lifeline that spanned the North Atlantic. The world watched carefully to see which would win. Each competitor sent to sea the fastest, biggest, and most elegant ships in the world, hoping to earn the distinction of being known as “the only way to cross.”
