This month’s book is:  Dead Wake  by Erik Larson


“Dead Wake tells the story of one of the greatest and most memorable cruise ships in history aside from the Titanic, its Cunard rival Lusitania. In addition, out of all the ships that were converted for use in the war, the Lusitania was the only one that was exempted and continued on as a cruise ship. However, its job of carrying passengers across the Atlantic Ocean was not the thing that made her famous today.” Goodreads

This book is available through our Hoopla app with your library card or reserve a print copy at our library. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link. Register by e-mailing Jacquie Owens or on our website calendar, or call the library at 315-635-5631. Extra help connecting and participating is available.
