Shaw, a member of the International Titanic Society, will share stories of day-to-day activities on the ship as well as the famous and not-so-famous tales of passengers and crew. The Walnut Creek resident enjoys giving talks to schools groups and the public.
"My mother took me to see a Titanic film in 1954," Shaw recalled.
Since then he has collected hundreds of books on the subject as well as numerous replica artifacts, many of which will be on display the evening of the lecture.
The event is open seating at the Firehouse Arts Center, 4444 Railroad Ave. Tickets are $10 for general admission; $5, members and seniors; and $3, students/teachers. Call the Museum on Main, 603 Main St., at 462-2766 to purchase tickets.
