This event has been postponed until Autumn 2020 but Julie will be giving a Lunchtime Lecture about her research and discoveries while writing the book on Friday 3rd April at 12:30.
To watch, visit our Lunchtime Lectures page on 3rd April.
When Titanic foundered in April 1912, the world’s focus was on the tragedy of the passengers who lost their lives. The Titanic and the City of Widows it Left Behind focuses on another group of people – the widows and children of the crew who perished on board.
Author Julie Cook’s great-grandfather was a stoker who died on Titanic. Her great-grandmother had to raise five children with no breadwinner.
This book focuses on Emily and the widows like her who had to fight for survival through great hardship, whilst still grieving for the men they loved who’d died on the ship.
As well as an introduction from Julie, the event will include access to GHT’s historic tower with views over Ocean Terminal where the Titanic sailed from. Julie will also have copies of the book for sale.
