    Dead WakePlease join us for a stimulating discussion of our January book selection and bring your suggestions for future readings. All PJTC members are most welcome! We will be reading Dead Wake:The Last Crossing of the Lusitania. From the best-selling author and master of narrative nonfiction Eric Larson comes the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania. On May 1, 1915, with WWI entering its tenth month, a luxury ocean liner sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. The passengers were surprisingly at ease, even though Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone. It is a story that many of us think we know but don’t, and Larson tells it thrillingly.
    Books are available at Vroman's at a 20% discount. We are listed as PJTC Book Club.
