Tales From The Titanic
The Estes Park Public Library will present “Uncle Olaus Survives the Titanic” for students in fourth grade and up. Adults are also welcome to attend the program on Saturday, February 21st at 2:00 in the Hondius Room of the public library.
Storyteller Pam Faro will recount the tale of her Great Uncle Olaus, who was a survivor of the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic. Left to die in the frigid Atlantic, Olaus was pulled from the water by the passengers of the only lifeboat to return to the scene.
At the conclusion of Pam’s story, she will share photos of her great uncle taken just after he landed in New York following his rescue and others taken later when Pam knew him as an old man.
Since 1988, Pam Faro has earned her living by offering top-quality storytelling performances and workshops. She’s performed on the symphonic stage of the Colorado Music Festival, for city-wide literacy programs in Phoenix, on canoe trips down Colorado’s rivers, and at art festivals with audiences numbering many hundreds. Colorado storyteller Pam Faro has performed and taught in schools, libraries, churches and theaters across the United States.
“Uncle Olaus Survives the Titanic” is a multigenerational program made possible from a grant the library received from the Colorado State Library with monies from the Library and Technology Services Act.
