Titanic anniversary returns ‘A Night to Remember’ to best-seller lists

    NEW YORK — (AP) The 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking has returned a classic account of the tragedy to the best-seller lists.

    Walter Lord’s “A Night to Remember,” first published in 1955, will be No. 1 this Sunday on The New York Times’ chart of combined print and e-book nonfiction sales. The paperback was 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.

    “I couldn’t be happier for Walter that ‘A Night to Remember’ has at last emerged again for the beginning of a whole new publishing life with Open Road,” literary agent Sterling Lord (no relation to Walter Lord), who represents the author’s estate, said in a statement Tuesday.

    Lord’s book was adapted into a movie of the same name in 1958. The author was a consultant on James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster “Titanic,” which was re-released this year. Lord died in 2002 at age 84.
