LFP - Literary Book Club -Thunderstruck

Mar 30 2015 7:00 pm
Mar 30 2015 8:00 pm

This suspenseful work of narrative nonfiction evokes the dynamism of the Edwardian era, when great shipping companies competed to build the biggest, fastest ocean liners; scientific advances dazzled the public; and the rich outdid one another with ostentatious displays of wealth. Against this background, Larson tells the interwoven stories of two men - Hawley Crippen, a very unlikely murderer, and Guglielmo Marconi, the obsessive creator of a seemingly supernatural means of communication - whose lives intersect during one of the greatest criminal chases of all time.

Join Jane in the Den for a lively discussion.
