Iowa's Lost Titanic History

Monday, June 24, 2019

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, although many of their haunting, poignant, and sometimes shocking tales have nearly faded away. Join author, Darcy Maulsby on a remarkable journey as she brings these unforgettable stories from the “ship of dreams” back to life once more. This event is free to attend and open to the public. No registration required.
