May 1st - 7:30 pm Even before Titanic was being built, people were building her stories.
Every year since, more stories about her are told -- stories that claim to be fiction, stories that claim to be fact -- and few of them agree.
Join the Jules Verne Phantastical Society of Halifax for an exploration of how we build stories, how we change stories, and how we grow stories. Join us for an exploration of how the many different stories of Titanic unfolded through newspapers, and books, and letters.
The Jules Verne Phantastical Society explores an interest in stories, and the way in which stories are crafted. The growth of this story, starting with a science fiction story published in 1898, through fact and fiction during and after the events of 1912, allows us to see the way in which stories are born, both intentionally and unintentionally. Even during the days of that sinking, people were telling and re-telling their own versions of events, to their own purposes, with even H. G. Wells and Charles Dickens lending their voices and opinions.
