The Heroes of the Titanic (And One Villain)
April 13 @ 10:00 am
Join author and historian Bradley Harper on April 13, 2024, one day short of the 112th anniversary of the day the Titanic ended its trans-Atlantic journey to sink into legend.
Brad will speak of the heroes and villains of that fateful night and, at the end, discuss the premise for his historical novel, pitting a gang of female thieves against the son of the real-life inspiration of Professor Moriarty as they do a battle of wits over a life-sized painting of a nude Circassian woman by the French artist Blondel, which was aboard the ship.
The Unsinkable Molly Brown, John Jacob Astor, and Second Officer Lightoller are among the many notables he’ll discuss, and how the second officer earned a footnote in history in WW II.
The game’s afoot, or rather, at sea.
Life belts are optional.
