Michael McCarthy, a former reporter and editor for The Wall Street Journal, will discuss his national bestseller, Ashes Under Water: The SS Eastland and the Shipwreck That Shook America. The book brought to life a tragedy in which more than 800 people, mostly poor women and children, perished in a steamship capsize in 1915. It hit the New York Times bestseller list in 2015 and inspired a documentary film, forthcoming on PBS, titled Eastland: Chicago’s Deadliest Day.
