A child with happy memories of crossing the Atlantic on ocean liners with his parents, author René Silvin will focus on the subject of his latest book the Normandie: The Tragic Story of the Most Majestic Ocean Liner. The French Line’s glorious and glamorous flagship first set sail from Le Havre on May 29, 1935 and died an inglorious death on February 10, 1942 at a New York dock on the Hudson River, two months after Pearl Harbor and with war raging throughout Europe.
