Call Me Bill Book Launch
On April 1, 1873, the SS Atlantic, a White Star Line passenger steamship ran aground just off Prospect, just south of Halifax. Over the next several hours, rescuers pulled 429 traumatized survivors out of the wreckage. But 535 people didn’t survive, including Bill, a sailor who during the subsequent autopsy, was discovered to be female.
Bill's story has finally been illuminated by local writer and artist Lynette Richards. Read the full story in WayvesMagazine here.
