It is estimated that there have been at least 6,000 shipwrecks on the Great Lakes. Over 30,000 lives have been lost in those wrecks. Each of the losses is a story waiting to be told.

From the heartbreak of the Lady Elgin tragedy to the legendary sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald, and many others, you’ll hear tales of tragedy and mystery during this storytelling event.

Presenter Anna Lardinois is an award-winning tour guide and author of 12 books of regional history and lore, including Shipwrecks of the Great Lakes, as well as Storied and Scandalous Wisconsin, and Milwaukee Ghosts and Legends.
