April 21st at 1:00 p.m. - Lunch 'N Books: Dead Wake by Erik Larson

Join us on April 21 at 1:00 p.m. as we discuss Dead Wake by Erik Larson. On May 1, 1915, with World War I entering its tenth month, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. This is the true story of the submarine attack on the Lusitania, the lives and deaths of some of its passengers, and the sinking of the largest and fastest ocean liner of its time.
