Author Walter Lord penned “A Night to Remember,” in 1955. This classic book will be No. 1 this Sunday on The New York Times’ chart of combined print and e-book nonfiction sales. The paperback was originally published by Henry Holt and Company. The e-book was released last month by Open Road Integrated Media, a digital publisher that says the e-edition has been downloaded around 30,000 times.
The book was adapted into a movie of the same name in 1958. The author was a consultant on James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster movie “Titanic,” which was re-released this year in 3D. Walter Lord died in 2002 at age 84.
