History Book Group

The History Book Group meets on the second Thusday of the month at 2pm, in the Idea Studio. 

On Thusday April 14th we will discuss Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lisitania by Erik Larson

"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. Full of glamour, mystery, and real-life suspense, Dead Wake brings to life a cast of evocative characters, from famed Boston bookseller Charles Lauriat to pioneering female architect Theodate Pope Riddle to President Wilson, a man lost to grief, dreading the widening war but also captivated by the prospect of new love. Gripping and important, Dead Wake captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster that helped place America on the road to war" - Amazon
