Book Club – In the Garden of Beasts

Join us at Wheelock Branch to discuss, In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson, September 5, 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

Bestselling and award winning writer Erik Larson offers his most compelling story with In the Garden of Beasts, an intense account of one professor's experience with the "New Germany" in 1933. Suffused with the tense atmosphere of the period, and with unforgettable portraits of the bizarre Göring and the expectedly charming--yet wholly sinister--Goebbels, In the Garden of Beasts lends a stunning, eyewitness perspective on events as they unfold in real time, revealing an era of surprising nuance and complexity.
