Ohio Tales of the Titanic

Talk at Dover, Ohio, library


Dover was a fun experience!

Before our book was even finished, Jim Gill, director of the Dover Public Library, invited me to come down and give a talk on the Ohio Titanic connections on April 3. Fortunately we got copies just a week earlier! Before the talk, my husband and I met Jim for dinner along with a couple of friends who came down from Cleveland. We had a delightful Italian meal at Uncle Primo’s in New Philadelphia. It was nice getting acquainted with Jim before the talk.

The audience was great. People seemed really interested to learn about the Titanic connections in their part of the state and asked some good questions. Jim and all the other folks I met down there couldn’t have been nicer.

I had never been to Dover before, despite living in Ohio for 18 years. Hope it’s not my last visit. A charming town with lots of nice, well-kept older homes on tree-lined streets. The rolling hills and countryside south of Canton reminded me of southern Indiana, an area I’ve always loved and where I lived for many years.

Here are a couple of photos from the event.
