Historian Steven Ujifusa first wrote about the SS United States for PlanPhilly five years ago, and this summer we’re proud to help him celebrate the release of his book,  A Man and His Ship, all about the “Big U” and its designer William Francis Gibbs.

On July 19, we are excited to join Steve in conversation about the SS United States‘ history and future at the Independence Seaport Museum for our next Behind PlanPhilly event. And on the evening of August 1, Steve will join PennPraxis’ Harris Steinberg on a Delaware River boat tour we’ve put together to bring people up close to the SS United States.
