Experience the Titanic’s doomed voyage as Barry Denenberg, author of Titanic Sinks!, joins us in the Barbara K. Lipman Children's History Library to read excerpts and discuss his book for young readers. Questions surrounding the sinking of the Titanic will be certain to drive this discussion – questions about arrogance and corporate greed, questions about the lifeboats leaving half empty, questions about iceberg warning signs and questions about why so many third-class passengers perished. Join Mr. Denenberg in this thrilling discussion designed for families with children 8 and older.

There is also a unique opportunity to read a letter written by a Titanic survivor on stationary from The Carpathia, the rescue ship that fateful day.

Free with Museum admission.
