March 1 • 3-4 p.m. on WAAM • Ann Arbor


John Maxtone Graham, the dean of maritime historians, returns to describe his new book, “S.S. United States: Red, White, and Blue Ribbon’d Forever” (Worton publishers). John’s immense knowledge and unbridled enthusiasm makes us feel that we’re sailing aboard that fastest of all ocean liners, which smashed all speed records on her 1952 maiden voyage, and retained them until her premature retirement in 1969.
