About the Event
Join us for an in-person book discussion on Erik Larsen's "Dead Wake: the last crossing of the Lusitania." We will be meeting on the library's front lawn. Should the weather turn bad, we will hold the meeting virtually on Webex.
About the book: The #1 New York Times best-selling author of In the Garden of Beasts presents a 100th-anniversary chronicle of the sinking of the Lusitania that discusses the factors that led to the tragedy and the contributions of such figures as President Wilson, bookseller Charles Lauriat and architect Theodate Pope Riddle.
It is a story that many of us think we know but don't, and Erik Larson tells it thrillingly, switching between hunter and hunted while painting a larger portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era.
Stop by the library, give us a call, or visit our online catalog to place a hold on a copy of the book!
