Monday Book Group Reads The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson

March 15, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us to discuss Erik Larson’s latest book on the events unfolding as Winston Churchill became Prime Minister.

“On Winston Churchill’s first day as prime minister, Adolf Hitler invaded Holland and Belgium. Poland and Czechoslovakia had already fallen, and the Dunkirk evacuation was just two weeks away. For the next twelve months, Hitler would wage a relentless bombing campaign, killing 45,000 Britons. It was up to Churchill to hold his country together and persuade President Franklin Roosevelt that Britain was a worthy ally, and willing to fight to the end.”   From the publisher.


All adults are welcome to join our book discussions.  Copies of the book are available by request.  Call the library to pick up a copy or request curbside pick-up.  Please register by emailing Beth Van Ness to obtain the Zoom link for our discussion.  bvanness@libraryconnection.info or bvanness@townofcantonct.org
