On a frigid April evening in 1912, the luxury ocean liner Titanic struck an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the north Atlantic.  Among her passenger lists were more than 20 people with ties to Iowa -- some wealthy passengers, others poor immigrants in steerage hoping to make a new life in America.  Some would survive. Some would perish. Some would start new lives and never look back, and others would be affected all their lives by one cold, watery night.  Learn the tales of courage, bravery, and loss as noted historian Darcy Maulsby shares from her new book.
