Join the Friends Only Book Club to discuss  Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson.

November Friends Book Club selection.

Join us on Friday, November 16 at 10 AM in the Mia Art Research & Reference Library, first floor Target Wing, to discuss Erik Larson’s masterful novel Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania.

After our moderator-led book discussion, we will take a docent tour related to the novel.

A New York Times book review called Erik Larson one of the modern masters of popular narrative nonfiction.  He is both a resourceful reporter and a subtle stylist. The mighty ocean liner Lusitania was the paragon of civilization; big and fast, strong and sleek, tricked out with every kind of innovation, it was a White City on the high seas.  And hunting it was an ever sly and furtive machine of the deep, a nautical sociopath with an unquenchable thirst for bringing down tonnage. When it comes to the story of the sociopath, the Larson magic is very much on display in Dead Wake.

Please reserve your spot by calling the Friends Office at 612.870.3045. There are only 20 spots available for this event.

Mia Book Club does not meet in December.  Mark your calendar for Friday, January 11 for the first Mia Book Club meeting of 2019!
