The Titanic: Beyond the Wreck, an Untold Story

By |2022-04-25T11:05:24-04:00April 27, 2022|

You know about the iceberg. You’ve probably seen the movie and even the documentary, but there’s so much more to the Titanic than “Nearer, My God, to Thee.”

Kevin Magee, a diver and member of the Cleveland Underwater Explorers, talks about why the Titanic and its sister ships were initially built, what made these gargantuan liners unique besides their size, and how the Titanic’s wreck changed maritime law forever.

He also discusses the novel that eerily predicted the Titanic’s demise (and why people should be more nervous about the Ides of April.)

By the way, Magee has discussed other shipwrecks at our library. Every time he visits, he shares a fascinating story. Some of these talks are available to watch on our YouTube channel:

Meet the Unsinkable Molly Brown

Margaret "Molly" Brown

Margaret “Molly” Brown

The unsinkable Margaret “Molly” Brown was immortalized in a single moment — that is the early hours of April 15, 1912, when the passenger liner RMS Titanic sank — but her entire life is remarkable.

You can not only learn about but meet Ms. Brown (as performed by an actress from Women in History) during a special program at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, March 11, at our Main Branch.

Discover how Brown’s family earned its massive wealth, her mission to improve the lives of women, and her heroism the night the Titanic sank.

This program is free and open to all. You can register to attend online or by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.

By the way, if you’re interested in the Titanic, we have dozens of books and documentaries that you can borrow. (We also have that movie, if you want.)
