We met on Thursday and had a great discussion about "The Devil in the White City" by Erik Larson. It is remarkably well researched and is quite remarkable, period. You certainly feel compelled to do your own research once finishing. We sure did and it made us want to go back to Chicago!
This month's book was referred from two attendees who heard a bit on NPR last month. They both couldn't remember the title of the book but that it was lovely. The subject of the book sounds harrowing but hopeful. This month we will be heading to Mumbai, India with "Behind the Beautiful Forevers: life, death, and hope in Mumbai undercity" by Katherine Boo.
"From Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo, a landmark work of narrative nonfiction that tells the dramatic and sometimes heartbreaking story of families striving toward a better life in one of the twenty-first century’s great, unequal cities. In this brilliantly written, fast-paced book, based on three years of uncompromising reporting, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human."
