Colorado author Shana Abé will take you behind the scenes and share her research on the Titanic and the scandalous marriage of John Jacob (“Jack”) Astor to Madeleine Force. The book tells the real-life love story of Madeleine and Jack, one of the world’s richest men. In 1911, Astor married 18-year-old Madeleine, who quickly became a favorite target of the tabloids. To escape the press, they honeymooned in Egypt and Paris before deciding to return to America as first-class passengers aboard the luxurious Titanic.
