Meet the Author on World Book Night at Perton Library

Meet author Andrew Lound for a special one-off book launch of his fascinating new book ‘R.M.S. Titanic: Made in the Midlands’

The story of the ill-fated liner Titanic is one that has been told and retold countless times – it is hard to imagine that there could be any new stories or twists to the tale. Yet Titanic’s strong connection with the Midlands is one such story that is not so well known. The ship may have been built in Belfast, registered in Liverpool and sailed from Southampton, but over 70 per cent of her interiors came from the Midlands. This pivotal piece of research from Titanic expert Andrew P.B. Lound explores the role played by the people and the varied industries of the Black Country in the life of the most famous ship in the world.

Andrew will be talking about his new book and the many stories of Midlands people and businesses that inspired it.

There will be a Q & A session after the presentation where you can ask questions about Titanic or about the process of writing the book.

Andrew will also be signing copies of the book, available for £17.99
