Wade Sisson: Racing Through the Night
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day.
Author Wade Sisson discusses the Titanic’s sister ship, the R.M.S. Olympic, which steamed 300 miles in a desperate rescue mission to pick up survivors of the now legendary disaster. In his book Racing Through the Night, Sisson looks at the entwined fates of these two “unsinkable” vessels.
A resident of Overbrook, Kansas, Sisson fell in love with the Titanic’s story when he was in the sixth grade. He joined the Titanic Historical Society just a few months before the wreckage of the ship was discovered in 1985.
