Scientist, Dr. Henrietta Mann and Oral Herstorian, Rosalee Peppard join forces to present a fascinating multidisciplinary insight into the legend: LIVING TITANIC at 7:30 pm. Dr. Mann is a long time researcher of Titanic and its wreck and the discoverer of a new living species of bacteria: Halomonas Titanicae. After a brief history of Titanic, Dr. Mann will present how the bacteria specimens were obtained and expose what exciting micro-life can be found living today in Titanic’s rusticles! Rosalee Peppard will debut her "LIVING TITANIC - A Musical Memoir of Nova Scotia's Only Survivor: Hilda Mary Slayter". Ms Slayter left Halifax in 1906 to pursue a singing career in UK and Europe. In 1912, she was returning home, when she had a brush with destiny. Embarking on the maiden voyage of RMS Titanic with her fine wedding trousseau, Hilda survived the sinking, married and lived a full and remarkable life - she also survived the Halifax Explosion five years later! Rosalee is excited to join Henrietta and debut her new Titanic show, songs, and stunning period costume, honouring the unique Halifax Harbour connection with Titanic. This special Titanic event is free to the public, but donations to Feed Nova Scotia are welcome.
