Hugh Brewster on the Titanic
Around the world there are commemorations, scientific talks, exhibitions and author readings marking the 100th anniversary of this oceanic disaster--you can check out events in Canada and around the world on the CBC's website. Among these, TPL is featuring award-winning writer Hugh Brewster.
Brewster talked about the Titanic and his new book (RMS Titanic: Gilded Lives on a Fatal Voyage) to a crowded Beeton Auditorium yesterday. CBC interviewed Brewster and the clip will air tonight (CBC Newsworld/(Rogers 26) on the National (9-10 pm and 11-12 pm) and CBC (Rogers 6) at 10 pm.
Brewster will be reprising his talk at four other TPL branches (see below). And don't miss Toronto Reference Library's fascinating display of Titanic books and old postcards from TPL's collection (on the second floor). Librarians in any branch can help you locate books and articles, so don't hesitate to ask.
