Ken Zurski presents "The Wreck of The Columbia," and examination of the worst maritime accident in the history of the Illinois River, and a mostly forgotten tragedy today.

Through photos, descriptions and excerpts from his book, Zurski explains this compelling true story from the moment the captain sensed a problem, to the horror of the cries and screams in the night, to the courageous actions of the rescue and recovery workers, and ultimately to the pursuit by law enforcement officials to find truth and justice.

In addition, Zurski will highlight some of the commemorations planned for next year's 100th anniversary of the wreck, including an archaeological dive at the wreck site.

Zurski will also introduce his current project "Unremembered" and forthcoming book of people and events that were "famous once now mostly forgotten"
