Julie Williams' great uncle was on the legendary Titanic when the great ship went down. As a result, Julie grew up hearing all of his stories firsthand and naturally grew up with a fascination surrounding the ship and it's fate. She went on to write a book, A Rare Titanic Family, and it was published last year!
The Birmingham, Ala; author will be here, in the Longview Public Library's Moeschle Room, on Friday, January 18th, to share her great uncle's stories with us. She will also discuss her book and autograph copies for interested patrons!
The presentation will begin at 10:30 AM so please make arrangements to join us for this special appearance!
