Presentation tells Titanic survivor's tale
GENOA – “The sea is no place for a woman,” Leslie Goddard said, as she opened her dramatic, one-woman program on Violet Jessop, a first-class stewardess who survived the sinking of both the Titanic and its sister ship the Britannic.
For 45 minutes, Goddard, a re-enactor from Darien, mesmerized the standing-room only crowd in the Community Room of Resource Bank in Genoa with first-hand accounts of both events taken from Jessop’s 1998 memoir. The program was part of the Genoa Public Library’s summer reading program.
“It seemed like an appropriate program,” Craig Pierce, the library’s outreach director, said, adding that a lot of kids do research on the Titanic.
