Led by PLG store manager Geo, our nonfiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For April, the group discusses The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. This New York Times bestseller intertwines the true tale of the 1893 World’s Fair and the cunning serial killer who used the fair to lure his victims to their death. Combining meticulous research with nail-biting storytelling, Erik Larson has crafted a narrative with all the wonder of newly discovered history and the thrills of the best fiction. Architect Daniel Hudson Burnham overcame tremendous obstacles and tragedies as he organized the talents of Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles McKim, Louis Sullivan, and others to transform swampy Jackson Park into the White City, while Henry H. Holmes used the attraction of the great fair and his own satanic charms to lure scores of young women to their deaths.
