RMS Titanic: Gilded Lives on a Fatal Voyage

March 30, 2012 | Miriam | Comments (2) Facebook Twitter More...

One hundred years ago, on April 14, 1912, the great ocean liner Titanic went down. Toronto Public Library is pleased to welcome award-winning writer Hugh Brewster to talk about his new book on this disaster which continues to grip readers. A real expert on the Titanic, Brewster was for two decades an editor and publisher at Madison Press Books where he helped edit and compile the images for Dr. Robert Ballard’s bestseller, The Discovery of the Titanic and Titanic: An Illustrated History

Brewster’s R.M.S. Titanic weaves the story of that fateful crossing with compelling portraits of the people on board--those who survived and those who tragically lost their lives--allowing us to place ourselves on that sloping deck and ask, "What would we do?"
