Our next book will be The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. It is a non-fiction book set in Chicago in 1893 and relays the stories of Daniel H. Burnham, the architect of the 1893 World’s Fair, and Dr. H. H. Holmes, the serial killer who opened a hotel two miles away and used the location to kill numerous victims.
Yes, it sounds gruesome; but it’s a true story about American history, so who are we to deny the knowledge, as well as the entertainment factor?
We’ve set a goal of 100 pages (of the hard copy, Hannah got it on her iPad so the page numbers vary), or through the “The Landscape of Regret” chapter, by Friday. I hope y’all will read along!
