What do an orphan train rider, a kidnapper, a missionary, a wealthy businessman, a wedding guest, a betrayed wife, a farmer and an immigrant recruiter have in common? All had ties to Iowa, and all were passengers aboard the ill-fated Titanic on the fateful night of April 15, 1912, when the famous ocean liner sank. There were a surprising number of first-, second- and third-class passengers with Iowa connections. Join Darcy Maulsby on a remarkable journey as she brings these haunting, poignant, and sometimes shocking tales from the “ship of dreams” back to life once more.

This is an in-person presentation that will take place at the Library.
