Kent Library’s Spring 2012 Athenæum Series presents – Titanic: the Centennial

The Athenaeum Spring Series will present “Titanic: the Centennial” at noon on Wednesday, April 4, at Sadie’s Place in Kent Library. Dr. Eric Clements will consider the Titanic disaster and its legacies from three perspectives: the events themselves; the meaning of those events in their time; and how the disaster has come to be understood in the century since.  He will cover as many related topics as possible in the presentation.  These range from the competitive context that produced the ship, through the Titanic in story and song, down to the Titanic as the universal present-day metaphor for disaster. The event is open to all and refreshments will be served. For more information, call Kent Library at 651-2235.
