Titanic iceberg

On the 106th year anniversary week...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 Iowa historian and "author-preneur" Darcy Maulsby of Lake City on a remarkable journey as she brings these unforgettable stories from the"ship of dreams" back to life once more.  Through her masterful storytelling, Darcy weaves together a fascinating look at the maritime disaster from a totally different perspective than most people are accustomed to or have any knowledge of.  During this spellbinding voyage, delve into the human drama intertwined with the Titanic epic, find out who survived, and explore the aftershocks that continue to fascinate us more than a century after the Titanic sank.
